These camps will focus on learning to play chamber music. They
are conducted by Hilel Kagan, critically acclaimed Chicagoland
conductor, and Helia Schramm, well known violin teacher. Camps are
arranged by age and student ability. They are open to violinists,
violists, cellists and basses. To participate in the Training Camp,
students must be able to read music and simple rhythms.
Participants interested in the Intermediate Camp should have some
knowledge of positions. Senior Camp participants should have
intermediate and advanced knowledge of their instrument.
Created in 2006 by Hilel Kagan,
Canzonetta is a Chicago area youth string chamber orchestra. The
repertoire is baroque, classical and contemporary with high demands
for technical perfection, tonal refinement and phrasing. The
personal attention which all students receive in the small chamber
orchestra is crucial for developing individual skills. A unique
atmosphere of togetherness and bonding among ensemble members is
enhanced through understanding their constantly fluctuating roles
in the melodic, harmonic and rhythmic structure of the music.
Canzonetta is open to all youth and
attracts talented music students from the northern suburbs and
Chicago. Camps are held at the Wilmette's Community Recreation
Center, Wilmette, IL.
