Hello fiddle-friends:

Is anyone out there going this summer to either Fiddle Tunes in Port Townsend, WA (http://www.centrum.org/fiddle/ft-description.html) or to the Stanford Jazz Residency in Stanford, CA (http://stanfordjazz.org/jazz-camp/2012-residency/)?

The Scor camp sounds very interesting.  I would love to play in a string orchestra or chamber group.  Perhaps they can start a camp out west, too.

Oh my, I have attended that camp - the Rochester NY  SCOR!  - for the last 3 years.  It is sooooo much fun. 

There is a chamber music orchestra just for us beginners called the Basic Track.   And it really is for beginners and "intermediate wannabe's".    I started as a violin II, and last year I made it to violin I!!!!  It is sooo much fun to play with cellos, bases, and 2-3 part violin's.  After rehearsing from Wed - Sat morning, we have a concert on Saturday afternoon - the staff is very supportive and staff members will join us if any  section is struggling.  

I'm lucky that it is about 1 hour from my home, but people come from all over the US. 

In addition to the Basic Track, there are several other chamber music options for advanced adult players.

I love playing with the cellist!  And you get lots of playing time in, my hands feel like trained "athletes" after 4 days of camp.

OK, I'll calm down.   I only attend this camp, I have no other affiliation with them.

A few of the members of the orchestra I am in have attended that camp.  It must be good because they've gone for several years. Some went to Rochester and some to Atlanta.

Here is another camp, for adults and is offered in many states. It looks new and interesting.
