June 16 – 22, 2013
If you want to spend time with others who love music as much as you do — and learn from some of the best faculty in the nation — plan to be at the St. Olaf music camp this June 16-22 for the best week of your summer! Join high school students from around the nation in this intense and exciting week of music-making under the direction of the internationally acclaimed St. Olaf College music faculty.
Music camp days are filled with classes, lessons, rehearsals, and practice, but that’s not all. After a great meal and time to visit with new friends, you will enjoy faculty recitals, student recitals and performances, and social and recreational activities directed by camp counselors who are St. Olaf music students. A camp dance and a Talent/No Talent Night complete this rigorous and fun-filled week. You will return home with new skills, new energy, new friends, and a heightened commitment to music.
Music camp is open to high school students who have completed grade 9, 10, 11 or 12.
Music campers participate in one or two major ensembles:
Band, Choir and Orchestra
Music Camp Fee
Comprehensive Fee: $605
Fee includes housing in a college residence hall, all meals from Sunday dinner through Saturday lunch, class materials, two private lessons and a camp T-shirt.
College Scholarship Competition
St. Olaf Summer Music Camp will again be awarding scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each to three outstanding Summer Music Campers. These campers must be rising seniors and each must subsequently apply, be admitted and enroll as first-year students at St. Olaf College for the fall 2014 term. The recipients will be chosen by the camp faculty, with one recipient chosen from each of the large ensembles: camp band, choir, orchestra, and piano academy. All rising seniors will be considered for the award, which will be presented at the final concert on Saturday afternoon. Each award will be a renewable scholarship for up to four years, for a total of $4,000 each. It requires only that the student participate in a St. Olaf music ensemble on their scholarship instrument.
