for students entering grades 6-12

Suggested level for Strings: violinists & violists NYSSMA Level 4+; cellists NYSSMA Level 3+, Suzuki Book 3+; students must read music

Applicants are asked to send a brief video of your playing to molly.mcdonald@hochstein.org to ensure best possible group placement. 

Please note: Safety protocols will be followed for in-person classes. See details here.


In this week-long camp, students have the invaluable opportunity to play in a small string ensemble such as a trio, quartet, or quintet. Open to violin, viola, cello, and piano. Camp will include daily ensemble coachings, string orchestra, and musicianship classes with guest teachers. 

Chamber ensembles will be determined and music assigned prior to the start of camp. Pre-formed groups are welcome to apply (and we waive the application video in this case). 

Camp will conclude with a final performance on Friday, August 12. 

Fee: $10 registration fee; $350* tuition. (Fees are as of Summer 2022.)
