The 2024 ASI 2-week Intensive Chamber Music Camp is a high-level experience for the advanced string and piano student. The One-week Chamber Camp follows the same requirements for placement:
Fees: 2-week – $1080; 1-week – $620
Those who enroll in this program need to have well-developed reading skills and experience maintaining rhythmic independence.
Acceptance for advanced double bass students will be based on teacher recommendations. Pre-formed chamber ensembles are allowed with the consent of the student’s home teachers and the permission of the Chamber Music Coordinator.
The weekday schedule includes a 3-person master class, a repertoire class, a technique class, a chamber ensemble, and orchestra or piano ensemble. The Chamber Music Student Orchestras will perform in concert on Thursday evening of week 2. Concert attire for orchestra and chamber groups is all black. Please pack appropriately.
Orchestra and ensemble music will be distributed once all registrations are received and the groups are formed.
If you are aged 13-17, you might want to be a part of the teen dorm. Many students enjoy the bond that forms in this very special part of ASI – some of those bonds become lifelong friendships!
Chamber Music Students must bring their own music stands (label all parts).
A limited number of scholarships are available for cellists and violists participating in the 2-week Intensive Chamber Music Camp. Please navigate to the Scholarship Page to view forms and requirements.

The Teen Dorm is a long-standing tradition for students who attend the Chamber Music portion of the Institute – for good reason. The camaraderie that develops often creates lifelong friendships. It contributes to ensembles working together on many levels. Best of all, it’s a lot of FUN!
