The Mill Ave Chamber Players and Union32 will be holding their first chamber music camp this summer at Paradise Valley Community College. Focused on developing the skills needed to perform in a chamber music ensemble, this camp is open to high school and college-age students, as well as members of the community.  No chamber music experience is necessary to participate; we are excited to work with students of all ages and experiences!  Students will participate in daily warm-ups, coachings from members of the Mill Ave Chamber Players, large ensembles, and special topics classes covering a variety of topics related to chamber music.  The conclusion of the week will be a concert held in Central Phoenix on Thursday evening.
