Mountains & Strings Chamber Music Retreat at Harriman State Park of Idaho is a unique combination of chamber music and outdoor recreation. String students from all over the country bring their violins, violas, cellos, and basses to have the experience of an intense chamber music camp combined with a life changing outdoor adventure. Nestled between Yellowstone National Park and the Teton Mountain Range, Harriman State Park of Idaho is the perfect setting for young string players to experience chamber music, friendship, and the beauty of nature. Students at the retreat are each assigned to a small chamber ensemble (string quartet or trio) where they receive coaching from professional performers and teachers. In addition to string quartets and other small ensembles, all students participate in a chamber orchestra. Students also have the opportunity to attend violin, viola, and cello master classes and participate in fiddling, viola, and cello choirs. Performances include the student quartet concert and the Mountains & Strings Chamber Orchestra concert in Harriman State Park. Outdoor activities during the week include daytime and evening hikes in Harriman State Park, outdoor barbecues, games, and initiative classes.
Join us this summer as we discover the treasures of Nature, Recreation, Friendship, and Beautiful Music.
