This summer will be my third year on faculty at the Luzerne Music Center. LMC is an international music intensive camp set in upstate New York’s Adirondack Park, with programs for students aged 9-18. Students have the opportunity to perform with the symphony orchestra, in chamber groups, and as soloists throughout the program. Students will also take part in daily chamber music coachings and weekly private lessons. Campers have the experience spending a summer outdoors; LMC’s program incorporates activities such as hiking, swimming in the lake, canoeing, and off-campus trips to Lake George and the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (2017 included the NYC Ballet and Philadelphia Orchestra).
LMC is a hub for performances and masterclasses over the summer, including a residency by members of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Blair Bollinger (Bass Trombone of the Philadelphia Orchestra) directs the brass ensemble during the high school session. LMC faculty and guest artists are featured in concert every week of camp.
