Campers participate in several intensive days of flute study, from from Saturday morning, June 29, 2019 to Tuesday evening, July 2, 2019. The camp culminates in a demonstration performance for parents, family and friends on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.
Focus for 2019 will be: exploring how core principles make anything you are playing sound better! Bring music alive through the tools of dynamics, color, direction, articulation and vibrato. This will be fun and challenging for any level.
All campers will participate in chamber music groups and flute choir. The camp is open to junior high school and high school age flute players. All participants will receive individual instruction as well as small group instruction. Campers will be grouped according to age and ability and will spend several hours each day in chamber music rehearsals, as well as spend time working with faculty and staff coaches. There will also be afternoon recreation activities including a high or low ropes course (team building).
Placement Auditions will be held during check-in on Saturday, June 29, 2019. All campers should be prepared to play a variety of scales and an etude or solo of their choice. Campers should also expect to sight-read a selection that will be made available at the audition.
The camp faculty is comprised primarily of the Mansfield University Music Department and is augmented by individuals in the music field who are outstanding players and teachers. Camp counselors are selected Mansfield University alumni and music majors and will also serve as teaching staff by helping to coach master classes and chamber ensembles. The counselor to camper ratio is 1:10. Campers and counselors live in the campus residence hall and eat in the campus cafeteria.
