2017 promises to be an exciting week, as we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Blue Ridge Suzuki Camp!
We have invited back instructor Paige Whitley-Bauguess, who will be teaching baroque dance (Minuet, Gavotte, etc) to our students in group classes. On Wednesday evening we will have a grand baroque ball in the Shrine Mont ballroom, where students and families will have the opportunity to dance to our student groups and faculty orchestra. It is not too early to start planning your costume for this event!
This year we are again offering a full piano curriculum to Suzuki or traditional piano students. Due to the fixed number of pianos that we have available at Shrine Mont, there will be a limited number of spots and priority will be given to students who have siblings attending on other instruments.
Blue Ridge Chamber Music Institute draws some of the finest string and piano players from the region to a more focused experience of studying chamber music. Our chamber music instructors are not only professional chamber musicians themselves, they are truly gifted in teaching and inspiring young musicians.
Our Traditional Music & Dance night is always tremendous fun, with our fiddle, Celtic cello, and guitar students featured in a night of performances and contra dancing, led by our dynamic instructor Amy Cann.
Whether you are already part of our camp community, or hearing about us for the first time, we hope you will join us in Orkney Springs for the week of June 18-23.
I am happy to answer any questions you may have about camp, and look forward to seeing you this summer!
