The three-week Harp summer program is an excellent opportunity for the motivated student to develop as a musician and as an artist. During your time here, you will work with world-renowned conductors, teachers, and guest artists, in a curriculum that emphasizes musicianship, growth, and the joy of playing with an outstanding group of fellow musicians.
Solo, small group, and large ensemble rehearsal and performance are at the heart of the harp program. Harp student participate in the following:
- Harp ensemble is a daily class that focuses on the skills, art, and joy of chamber music as we explore challenging harp ensemble repertoire
- Studio classes provide opportunities for performance, practice, discussion of practice methods, and the occasional guest artist master class
- Private lessons provide students with weekly study with our highly educated and experienced harp faculty
Harpists may also rehearse and perform with the World Youth Symphony Orchestra (see 2020 repertoire; 2021 repertoire coming soon), Interlochen Philharmonic (see 2020 repertoire; 2021 repertoire coming soon), or the World Youth Wind Symphony (see 2020 repertoire; 2021 repertoire coming soon). These advanced large ensembles perform frequently throughout the summer, tackling challenging, mature repertoire under the direction of some of the world's preeminent conductors. Recent guest soloists include Yo-Yo Ma, Jennifer Joh, Awadagin Pratt, Joshua Bell and many others.
Faculty appointments for Arts Camp 2021 will be finalized in spring.
