Purpose and approach
CMIMeg hopes to provide each camper the insight to ensemble playing by in-depth study of one chamber work in two coached sessions per day, and the opportunity to play one challenging orchestra piece well.

This year, barring any other disasters such as the Aspen Fire three summers ago, we plan to hold our camp on “the Mountain” again. We will be at the First Southern Baptist Church Camp “Southern Pines” again this year. The camp is located on Mount Lemmon, just past mile post 20 on Organization Ridge Road.

Camp starts on Sunday, 21 July at 3:00PM and ends on Sunday, 28 July after the final concert in Tucson.

Fees and financial arrangements

All checks and money orders should be made payable to:

Visa, Mastercharge, and American Express are also accepted.

Registration for camp is scheduled for 3:00PM at Southern Pines. Registrants should have a completed application, health and medical form, and balance of tuition.
