Topic: Bassoon Scholarships available! Adult Amateur/Semi-Pro Music Camp

Scholarships available for bassoonists!

What is Midsummer Musical Retreat (MMR)?  It is an adult summer music camp held annually at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington.  This year’s camp is July 29 — August 3, 2008. MMR provides an intensive, fun-filled, week-long musical experience for amateur and semi-professional singers and instrumentalists.

With the support of a professional faculty, campers immerse themselves in music: orchestra, wind ensemble, chorus, chamber music, bassoon ensemble, brass ensembles, small vocal ensembles, string orchestra, faculty concerts and elective classes. There are formal and informal opportunities for campers to perform, all in a supportive and fun "retreat" atmosphere. Campers return from the retreat with more confidence, improved skills, new repertoire and friends, and a greater enthusiasm for music. Anyone who sings or plays an instrument can attend MMR.
