North Shore Summer Music Experience Camp

North Shore Summer Music Experience 2022

Due to current Covid-19 restrictions the following information comes from the Camp Director:

Due to the COVID capacity for Weber Music Hall we will need to limit the audience for the two concerts at end of this week. Both concerts will be live-streamed and only the final concert will be open to an invited audience.

Small Ensembles Concert – Thursday, June 23 – 6:30 – 8:00 pm

Audiences for the Small Ensembles concert on Thursday, June 24th will be limited to ONLY the camp participants this year. Anyone else will need to go to the live-stream website to view the concert. Below is the live stream link.

Final Concert – Friday, June 24 – 5:00 – 8:00 pm

Audiences for the Final Ensembles concert on Friday, June 24th will be limited to two invited family members for each of the camp participants. Any more than the two invited guests will need to go to the live-stream website to view the concert. We will be asking the students to give us the names of the invited guests and we will have those names at the concert on Friday. Invited guests will be checked in at the concerts. We are asking that invited guests only attend the concert that their camper is involved with for this concert.

This concert will feature the members of the Piano Camp, String Camp, Choral Camp and the Band Camp. Below is the live-stream link.

We will also be live-streaming this concert on campus in Bohannon 90 for guests that are not able to attend in Weber Hall but would like to be on campus to meet their student after the concert.

We are aware this is an inconvenience and hope you will understand the protocols necessary to take at this time.

Many thanks!

Dr. Mark Whitlock
