A limited number of scholarships will be available for students who register and send us a video audition by April 1, 2020. The video should contain between 7-10 minutes of solo repertotoire demonstration the students abilities. Videos can be emailed to email@example.com or mailed to 800 West Main Street, Room 2005 Roseman Hall, Whitewater WI 53190.
On the first day of camp, campers will play a short audition consisting of scales and sight reading. This audition will determine your orchestra placement and seating, so practice and prepare accordingly. The UW-Whitewater String Camps always draw many highly skilled young players, which makes the highest positions very challenging to earn. However, regardless of placement, all students get to play great music in an orchestra with their peers.
A number of outstanding solo and ensemble performers from the camp will be invited to perform in the Honors Recital. Bring your music and accompaniment parts to camp if you wish to audition for the honors recital. We will be provide an accompanist.
Camp Dress Attire
Causal dress is suitable for rehearsals, classes, meals and recreation. A sweater, sweatshirt, or jacket may be appropriate for classroom wear as the Center of the Arts is air-conditioned. The Friday concert will be semi-formal: for example, dresses for the girls; shirts, ties, and slacks for the boys. The wearing of sport coats is optional. No jeans or tennis shoes at the concert, please. Washers, dryers, and ironing boards are available. You must provide your own soap and iron.
Check in and Orientation
Resident and commuter campers must check in at the location mentioned in the Info Packet. Parents/guardians are invited to visit with staff members and ask any last minute questions. Please note that there are no structured activities during the check-in period, but residential staff will be in the residence hall to help campers get settled in their rooms and encourage campers to begin getting to know one another in an informal setting. Commuter campers can socialize at the dorms and go with the group to first session.
