Gilmore Piano Overnight Camp

Gilmore Piano Camp

Immerse yourself in music at The Gilmore’s overnight camp for pianists of all experience levels. Enjoy a balance of rigorous study, hands-on music activities, and the outdoors. Overnight piano campers will start their day with performances and stories at the morning prelude. They will have a piano lesson, a practice hour, and up to two electives each day. Elective selections include Composition, Recording Arts, Jazz & Improvisation, Technique & Artistry, Piano Ensemble, and Waterfront/Camper’s Choice. Evenings feature recitals and camp time. Students prepare for two recitals, the Thursday Night Throw-down, and the Friday Recital at 2:00PM–a final celebratory recital hosted by campers for their peers, friends, and family.

An audition is required for all piano campers.  Gilmore Scholarship auditions will be scheduled in December 2016.  Non-scholarship auditions will occur between March and June 2017.  To schedule an audition, call 269-342-1166 or visit http://www.thegilmore.org for more information. Video submissions are also welcome.  Enrollment is limited to 36 campers.
