Summer Music Camps

Summer Camps with SDYS and LevelUP

We’re excited to be launching two summer camp opportunities as part of SDYS’ participation in Level Up SD’s Summer Recovery Program. Level Up SD was created this year by the San Diego Unified School District and The San Diego Foundation as part of a comprehensive effort by San Diego Unified to help provide area students with a summer of learning and joy to prepare them academically and emotionally for the fall.

*Summer camps are open to all students, including non-SDYS musicians.

Chamber Music Camp

Monday, August 9 – Friday, August 13, 2021
1:30 – 5:00 pm @ Wilson Middle School Arts Campus

Join us for a five-day immersive chamber music camp, with the esteemed faculty of the San Diego Youth Symphony.

Open to students aged 10-18 with at least one year of experience playing an orchestral or band instrument.* ALL eligible SDYS students now invited to register!

Students will be placed into chamber groups according to their age and experience level, which will then rehearse and be coached each day. Students will also work to improvise together in a daily enrichment class, and finish their day in chamber master classes where they will further enhance their performance skills. This camp will culminate in a final informal performance for families and friends on Friday evening.
