About the event
Cougar String Camp is a chamber music/orchestra camp designed for intermediate and advanced string players, grade 8-12, including those having just completed 7th grade, and those having just graduated from high school. Violinists, violists, cellists and bassists work with Washington State University faculty and other fine musicians to improve their musical skills in a variety of ways. The camp focuses on chamber music (both large and small chamber groups) and string orchestra. Campers also have the opportunity to participate in jazz improvisation, fiddling, string techniques class, conducting, music theory, history class and master classes.
Cougar String campers also enjoy recreational activities such as picnics, indoor and outdoor games, dorm time, fun evening activities, concerts, and the use of the WSU Recreational Center. Cougar String Camp staff provides 24-hour supervision. Experienced counselors stay in Wilmer-Davis Dormitory with the residential campers.
