Let’s make music together – PRIZM Fest is back!

Summer Camp is now open!

It’s never too early to plan your summer break, and no break is complete without a week (or two!) with PRIZM Ensemble. Registration is now open for the 2022 PRIZM Summer Camp and International Chamber Music Festival! Young musicians are invited to join us during the weeks of June 6 and June 13 to hone their craft with our talented musical mentors.

Why PRIZM Summer Camp?

This intensive program offers young musicians a deeper dive into music education and technique. Students will learn directly from our robust faculty of mentors made up of highly respected musicians from across the nation, including professional orchestras, chamber ensembles and college professors.

Participants will receive daily instruction on their instrument, learn advanced music theory and history, and perform in master classes. Each week of the camp concludes with all students performing in a final public concert, as part of PRIZM’s two-week International Chamber Music Festival, alongside their peers and instructors. Students finish the program with more confidence in their playing, a better understanding in musicianship, and as stronger leaders to perform individually and in an ensemble setting of any size.

PRIZM summer camp is open to strings, woodwinds and brass instrument players, ages 12 and up.


Week 1: June 6-11
Week 2: June 13-18


The camp begins every day at 9 a.m. Students are expected to attend all International Chamber Music Festival concerts at 6 p.m. On nights there is no concert, the camp will adjourn at 4 p.m. (Stay tuned for the festival concert schedule!)

$375 per week. Scholarships are available by application.

Student Highlight: Kyla Christopher, 2021 summer camp attendee

“I’ve taken my flute to a lot of music camps throughout my musical career, but out of all of them, PRIZM is my favorite. PRIZM stands out from other programs because it gives students an opportunity to perform side-by-side with multiple professional musicians and for wind instruments to play in an orchestra. PRIZM challenged me to play in tune with strings, to play very delicately when I didn’t have the melody, and to project my sound across the orchestra when it was my time to shine. Thanks to PRIZM, I now regularly cue and listen to other sections. PRIZM is a place where a student can play in an orchestra, with professionals, or just make friends.”
