Hello NEAMC Campers,
I went to band camp this summer! What a fun thing to say as an adult. Hopefully it brings up wonderful memories and associations with being a kid again and playing your instrument just for the pure joy of it, with no expectations or competition, just making music!
That’s what the New England Adult Music Camp is all about. It’s a place to make new friends, learn a few things, relax, and take in the natural world and beauty of Snow Pond. You get to pick the things that best nurture you, whether it’s a music theory class, practicing in one of the practice cabins in the woods, a swim in the lake, taking a nap, or sharing your music experience with fellow musicians.
We are hard at work making plans for the 2019 camp session. There will be many of the usual activities; social hour each afternoon on the patio outside the lodge overlooking Snow Pond, jam sessions with the Drum circle, Irish or Dixieland band, or Recorders in the evening after supper, final concerts in The Bowl followed by “lobstah” dinner, and of course our evening activities featuring faculty and camper performances. Last year we added some new activities: ukulele ensemble, singing for adults and steel drum. They’ll all be back again in 2019 along with a few other new offerings.
Check our faculty page for information about our guest conductor for 2019.
The full schedule of ensembles and seminars will be available by June 1st so check back for updates.
If you are a returning camper you know how much fun it is, and if you are someone thinking about trying “camp” for the first time….JUST DO IT!
See you all in August 2019!
