A day and overnight music camp for strings, woodwinds and piano
We are hoping that this dark cloud will lift in time to make music together this summer! We do understand that this may change and wanted to let you know that if we are unable to host ChamberFest this summer, everyone that is signed up will receive a full refund (including the non-refundable deposit). Be well!

ChamberFest Mentoring Opportunity
ChamberFest participants will have the opportunity during camp for an internship working with youth from Neighborhood Strings, our intensive, accessible music program for children who live in downtown Worcester. Neighborhood Strings youth participate in daily afternoon group coaching sessions with faculty, with ChamberFest musicians as mentors. This opportunity, available during both sessions, offers participants a valuable chance for volunteer experience in a serious artistic environment. Interested participants can also continue their volunteer work with youth in the year-round Musician as Citizen program.
This program has been made possible, in part with support from ACMP The Associated Chamber Music Players, and the PEACE Fund of the Greater Worcester Community Foundation
