Chamber Music Intensive - Testimonials
When my mother notified me that NEMC had introduced a new program, the Chamber Music Intensive, I was beyond thrilled at the chance to come back to my second home. CMI was an amazing experience because it had all the unforgettable aspects of NEMC’s core session, but built off of the regular camp, creating a new program which I believed to be an amazing opportunity for myself as a chamber player to grow. It was a nourishing and focused environment. I applaud the entirety of NEMC’s faculty and staff especially for their efforts during the year of 2020. Attending the first CMI was an honor and privilege, and was certainly the highlight of such a difficult year. It brought the greatest joy and memories to my entire year. They made me feel safe and supported, while continuing to live up to the great legacy of this camp! The words thank you aren’t enough.

CMI was my source of light this year. I had no expectation that I was going to be able to play live music this summer, and CMI was an unbelievable respite from the stress and uncertainty of virtual learning. I had amazing groups to play with, along with an attentive and creative staff. I didn't expect to make as strong connections as I did, but I made close friends at CMI like I've made nowhere else. I never wanted to leave while I was there, and I've been counting the days until I go back.
