The 2022 ASI Advanced Chamber Music program is a 2-week intensive experience for the advanced string and piano student. The requirements for the program are:  
  • Violinists: Bach A Minor Concerto (Book 7) level and above
  • Violists: Telemann Concerto - (Book 4 level)  and above
  • Cellists: Book 5 and above

Those who enroll in this program need to have well-developed reading skills and experience maintaining rhythmic independence. Acceptance for advanced double bass students will be based on teacher recommendations. Pre-formed chamber ensembles are allowed with the consent of the students' home teachers and the permission of the Chamber Music Coordinator.

The weekday schedule includes a 3-person master class, a repertoire class, a technique class, a chamber ensemble, and orchestra or piano ensemble. The Chamber Music Student Orchestras will perform in concert on Thursday evening of week 2. Concert attire consists of a white top and black bottom. Please pack appropriately.

Orchestra and ensemble music will be distributed once all registrations are received and the groups are formed...

All Chamber Music applicants should complete the forms listed in the dropdown below. If you are age 13-17, you might want to be a part of the teen dorm (see dropdown below). Many students enjoy the bond that forms in this very special part of ASI - some of those bonds come life-long friendships!

Chamber Music Students must bring their own music stands (label all parts).

The one-week chamber music camp meets July 24-30. All of the same forms and parameters are consistent with those of the 2-week camp.

 Teen Dorm Information

Teen Dorm - a Great Place to Be 

IMG_9091(1).jpgThe teen dorm is a long-standing tradition for students who attend the Chamber Music portion of the Institute - for good reason. The camaraderie that develops often creates lifelong friendships. It contributes to ensembles working together on many levels. Best of all, it's a lot of FUN!

Here are some important pieces of information about the Teen Dorm:

  1. Students must be at least 13 years of age to be a part of the teen dorm. No exceptions.
  2. Students younger than age 13 may stay in the dorm with a parent, but counselors will not be responsible for those students. A parent must accompany them as they move from class to class. 
  3. Teen dorm residents will be housed according to gender in an area on separate floors, wings, or dorms. A counselor of the same gender will be housed in the same floor or wing.
  4. ASI will provide an experienced counselor for every 10 campers. The counselors are responsible for the whereabouts of their assigned campers at all times. The campers are responsible for respecting the rules as set forth by counselors and in ASI documentation. Respect is expected from all parties in attendance.
  5. Activities are offered for the teen dorm campers. 
  6. Residents must bring all linens (including pillows, blankets, sheets, and towels) and personal items needed for their stay.
  7. All dorm residents must adhere to any COVID and other policies and protocols required for ASI dorm living.
  8. Linens will not be provided in the dorms. Please bring your favorite blanket, sheets, pillow and towels to make ASI feel like your "home away from home."
