Age and Experience
This event is intended for college and advanced high school players (typically rising 11th or 12th graders) but may also include younger high school students that have significant experience. Rising 9th graders who will be 15 or older at the time of the event are welcome to submit an application.
Capacity is limited to 24 participants. Acceptance to the Summer Institute is based on experience and ability level. This is assessed through the submission of two contrasting video performances and a statement of experience and interest from the applicant.
Camp participants should plan to arrive with a minimum of two solo works that are either ready to perform or are a work in progress. These might include keyboard percussion (marimba, vibraphone, xylophone), concert or rudimental snare drum, timpani, multi-percussion, drum set, or otherwise. Additional solo and ensemble material will be assigned as we get closer the event and at the beginning of camp.
