The PRIZM Music Camp & International Chamber Music Festival is an opportunity for young musicians to learn the art of small ensemble playing, while meeting and working with world class musicians. This year the festival is from June 11-23, 2018. It will be held at Shady Grove Presbyterian Church (June 11-16) and at Mt. Moriah East Baptist Church tentatively (June 18-23). This year we are excited to announce a CHORAL session for the festival. If you are interested, please email us at info@prizmensemble. This website is currently UNDER CONSTRUCTION. New website coming soon!!

To participate in the Music Camp Festival, students must be 12 years or older, and have a minimum of two years experience with their instrument.

The instruments that are eligible are as follows:

Strings — violin, viola, cello, bass, guitar
Woodwinds — flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone
Brass — trumpet, horn, trombone, tuba

Evening concerts given by the PRIZM Ensemble are kid-friendly and will take place at Shady Grove Presbyterian Church.  Admission to all concerts during the festival is $20 general admission/$5 students. Children under 12 attend for free. Families of the participants can purchase discounted ticket packages. Tickets are available online at a discounted rate, or at the door for full price.

We will welcome back faculty from last year including: Alice Dade, Weston Sprott, Peter Miyamoto, Billy Hunter, Julian Hernandez, Aisha Syed Castro, Mariam Adams, and others. Don't miss it! Register now!


Each group will receive daily chamber music coachings, participate in master classes, and have the opportunity to perform in pre-concert recitals.

Select students will play alongside the faculty in a chamber group and perform in evening faculty concerts. In addition, all string players and selected wind participants will play in an orchestra without a conductor, based on the model made popular by the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, which continues its philosophy of performing without a conductor and rotating musical leadership roles for each work, and thus changing and challenging the way the world thinks about musicians, conductors, and orchestras. The Orpheus Orchestra also strives to empower its musicians by integrating them into virtually every facet of the organization, and the PRIZM Ensemble follows this principle.

In addition to the daily practice experience and routines, all students will have daily classes in topics ranging from music theory to music history to music appreciation.
