Join us at Chautauqua for Music and Fun! 


2016 will be our 18th year of making music
on the grounds of the Chautauqua Institution.

The Chautauqua Music Camps features four camps in one. Woodwind, brass and percussion students finishing grades 5-8 are eligible for our Middle School Band Camp. The Chautauqua Orchestra Camp is for high school and advanced middle school string students finishing grades 6-12. We will again offer a Chamber Music Camp for brass, woodwind, and percussion players finishing grades 9-12. Both Orchestra and Chamber Camps will continue our association with Pittsburgh-based, Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestras.  Returning for a seventh year will be the Chautauqua Jazz Camp for saxophone, trombone, trumpet, and rhythm section students finishing grades 9-12. Instructors for all four of our camps include members of the Chautauqua Symphony, as well as highly skilled teachers from around Western New York.

The Chautauqua Institution is home to a world-class Symphony Orchestra, Summer Opera Company, and Collegiate Summer Music Program. During the day, students will be able to enjoy many of the recreational activities available on the grounds. With their gate pass, students will be able to attend many of the evening events at the Institution for no extra charge during the week of the camp.
