2020 WYSO Virtual Summer Chamber Recording Camp

2020 WYSO Virtual Summer Chamber Recording Camp


Application Deadline: Friday, July 17, 2020

Summer Camp Dates: August 3 – 7, 2020

Fees: $80 for the week-long virtual camp

Head Music Coach: Karl Lavine

Head Recording Coaches: Dafydd Bevil and Tom Curry


Pre-Camp Time: Two weeks before the camp is scheduled to begin, our head music coach, Karl Lavine, will place each student in a chamber ensemble (based on experience) and will provide music to prepare for the recordings. The head recording coaches, Dafydd Bevil and Tom Curry, will also be in touch with each student to discuss home recording set-ups.

Week of Camp: During the week of online camp, each student will participate in group online classes and coaching sessions with a variety of skilled instructors. Coaches will assign daily tasks and work one-on-one with students to guide them through the steps of creating a click track, recording themselves, and editing a virtual collaboration with their assigned chamber partners. At the end of the camp, each applicant will have one virtual chamber music video to share with their friends and family.

No prior experience is needed for this camp, and most importantly, students will be making music together and will walk away with the skills necessary to produce more virtual music videos.
