For the past nineteen years, the Illinois Chamber Music Festival has been offering a superior chamber music experience to high school and college students coupled with world-class performers. We are pleased to offer in-person and virtual formats for students this year.

The camp for strings, piano, winds, and harp will be held July 11-25, 2021. Festival website:

July 11-16: Chamber music coachings for local/commuting students (1 hour per day) AND virtual master classes, technique classes, sessions on various music topics, and lessons (2 hours per day)

July 17-25: Full in-person chamber music program at IWU. The schedule includes daily chamber music coachings, rehearsals, masterclasses, elective studies, and performances by students and faculty. Room and board will be available for a limited number of residential participants.

This program is designed for young musicians who wish to participate in intensive chamber music training. Other studies and activities include music history and theory, conducting, and tennis.
