Music Northwest is offering five days of inspirational chamber music rehearsals and classes for music students. This camp is suitable for ages 7-21. A minimum of at least 2 years of experience on an instrument is required (strings, woodwinds, French horn, guitar, harp and piano.)
Our program features coached rehearsals with professional coaches; master classes in performance techniques and musical styles; sight-reading and rhythm classes; and a pizza party!
Already formed groups are welcome or we will place students in groups appropriate to their level.
The Tonkonogui Awards for Excellence in Chamber Music are given each year to chamber music groups of students, ages 7-21, who have shown outstanding achievement in chamber music.
They are given in honor of Seattle Symphony cellist, David Tonkonogui, who died in 2004 at the age of 45. He was a stunning soloist and chamber musician, and also a beloved teacher of many young musicians.
