Pre-camp information will be available on this website three weeks prior to the start of camp. Pre-camp information includes medication requirements (complete only if taking meds at this event), check-in and out times with locations, confirmed daily schedule, what to bring and other important information you will need to know before attending camp. If any medical information changes, it is your responsibility to notify Continuing Education Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are expected to bring your own instrument and have it in good working order.
Senior Campers, who are advanced players, can apply for our Artist Program (AP String Camp). To apply, students must send us a video audition by March 1, 2019. Winners will receive a promo code they will be able to use to register. Successful applicants will:
- Receive a full or half-tuition scholarship
- Receive a FREE private lesson with a UW-Whitewater Faculty member
- Be placed in other advanced classes throughout the week
The video should contain 7-10 minutes of solo repertoire demonstrating the student’s abilities. Videos can be emailed to: email@example.com.
Campers who did not submit a video by March 1, 2019 will audition on the first day of camp. Auditions may consist of sight reading, scales, and a prepared solo. This audition will determine your orchestra placement and seating. 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.
Bring your music and accompaniment parts to camp if you wish to audition for the Honors Recital. An accompanist will be provided.
