WHAT'S GOING ON?
Because of ongoing concerns with Covid-19, we have decided that the safest and smartest thing to do is to cancel the first year of Boston States Fiddle Camp this summer and INSTEAD host a week of online workshops, jams, and parties on Zoom. We want this to be fun, uplifting, and accessible to everyone so we're offering a FEW financing options:
$200/individual student for the week
$300/household for the week
Gala Concert by donation
All registration is online and a $10 processing fee will be added to each order. We want this camp to be available to everyone, so if you want to participate but your finances are uncertain due to Covid-19, please write to Katie and we'll work it out!
If you would like to make an additional donation to camp, please do so HERE. All funds brought in through this link will go directly toward paying our faculty—most of whom will not be able to perform at concerts and festivals for the rest of the year—and making sure Boston States has the resources to happen in 2021.
WHAT WILL ONLINE CAMP BE LIKE?
To help keep up all of our spirits, maintain a sense of community, and keep our faculty employed, we're rolling out an online camp with classes August 17-21, 2020. What we'll provide:
1 fiddle class each day from a rotating featured instructor
1 rotating non-fiddle class each day: step-dance, guitar, piano, singing, cello
1 elective each day: cooking class with Nancy! Interpretive dance with Elias! (Just kidding...sort of.)
One-hour session every evening led by our auxiliary fiddle staff
GALA CONCERT on Friday night featuring all of the faculty
Dropbox with recordings and sheet music for the week
Check-in email each morning of camp
We HOPE that you can join us during class hours, but all classes will be recorded and available to watch later if you are working/unavailable during the hours that classes are taking place. Because of all these extenuating circumstances, all classes will be conducted at an intermediate level. See schedule below (all times EDT).
All of our original 2020 staff will be teaching. Check out the list HERE!
