Description The Upper Midwest String and Chamber Music Conference is jointly sponsored by The College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph and MNSOTA. This is the ideal summer program for 7th through 12th grade students eager to develop their string playing through chamber music, string orchestra and technique classes. There is no entrance audition; all students are accepted in the order in which they apply. On the first day of camp, teachers hear students play to assess their experience in order to divide students according to age and ability for daily orchestra and chamber group rehearsals. The faculty of distinguished artist-teachers is aided by a corps of outstanding college student teaching interns, making possible considerable individual attention.

There is no entrance audition; students are accepted in the order in which they apply. There is a small pool of scholarship money available to assist students who otherwise not be able to attend; contact camp director David Arnott darnott@csbsju.edu for scholarship information.

Interns and faculty participate in daily pedagogy discussion and mentoring. Interns also have opportunities to observe student orchestral rehearsals and to participate in the faculty/intern solo and chamber music recital. The final chamber recital by the students is often a highlight for interns as they hear the success they have helped to foster.
Dorm counselors are also needed. Counselors assist the recreation director during meals and students’ free time, live in dorms with stu
