Sound Encounters Music Camp in 2010 6/15/10
June 15, 2010
I have been to this fantastic camp for last 11 years, and it is so wonderful to come back each year! It is located in Ottawa, KS, a very charming town, and our classes and lessons are held on Ottawa University campus. The camp last for 10 days, and we have full of music activities, concerts every night, lessons, chamber music, orchestra and classes! I am very fortunate to be a part of this Sound Encounters family. Most of faculties are same from the previous year, and it is so nice to get together around this camp. Most of us see each other only in KS! My chamber music partners are Susan Dubois, viola, and David Garrett, cello, and we presented our recital last Friday, including music by Chopin, Schumann, Glinka, Vieuxtemps, Glazunov, and Bloch. After the few days of the faculty recitals the students will start performing their chamber music starting tomorrow, Wednesday 16th. Of course there will be many groups so most of them will play one movement.
I am always impressed how well this camp is organized and how well the students behave. It is my pleasure to come back every year! We have 4 more days to go, and our camp will conclude with the final concert on Friday 18th!
