MSO musicians to foster young talent



Musically talented area youth will have an opportunity this summer to work with Maryland Symphony Orchestra Music Director Elizabeth Schulze and members of the orchestra. The Symphony Music Center, a collaboration between Hagerstown Community College's Center for Continuing Education and the MSO, is hosting the Symphony Chamber Music Institute, Sunday, June 17, to Friday, June 22.

Students entering grades 10 through 12 who successfully audition for the institute will play in small ensembles coached by MSO or HCC instructors, and will rehearse daily in a small chamber orchestra conducted by Schulze. Instrumental techniques will be highlighted in master classes and lessons presented by MSO and HCC musicians. Rehearsals, housing and meals will be at Shepherd's Spring retreat center in Sharpsburg. Local students may commute to the camp. Interested students need to submit an audition tape of two contrasting musical selections and a teacher's recommendation by Friday, May 25.

The Symphony Music Center is also providing another opportunity for students with a wider ability range at the Chamber Music Performance Camp, Monday, June 25, to Friday, June 29. Held in HCC's Kepler Theater, this camp will allow students to sharpen skills while enjoying the chance to perform in small ensembles and an all-camp chamber orchestra. Students ages 13 to 18 may audition for the camp, led by the MSO's principal second violinist, Deborah Stotelmyer. MSO and HCC instructors will coach daily ensemble rehearsals and theory classes. Auditions will be held Wednesday, May 30. Interested students must also submit a teacher's recommendation.

For information or to schedule auditions, contact Kate Levy at HCC's Center for Continuing Education at 301-790-2800, ext. 480.
