Meet our head counselor Dominic Giardino! Dominic was recently on tour with the Eastman wind group "Harmonie". He writes to us from Prague recently:
The tour has taken us through Austria, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Germany, and we have had the pleasure of sharing the music of Mozart, Beethoven, Uhl, Joplin, and Husa (to name only a few) with enthusiastic audiences. When I return to Rochester in early June, I will be spending the weeks before Keuka practicing four different clarinets and preparing for my move to the Netherlands in the fall where I will be studying as a Fulbright Scholar.

Here's a peek at the shenanigans the group got up to one afternoon on the side of the autobahn.... Dominic is in the dark shirt on the right. Our returning students know that he is always up for a good joke and happy to help anyone work on their playing! We are so lucky to have him at our camp again this year!

We are thrilled to announce that Jon Nakamatsu will give a masterclass on July 13 at 2pm in Norton Chapel. Jon won the Van Cliburn competition in 1997, while he was teaching high school German full time. He is an inspiring and generous musician, and we can't wait for everyone to meet him! On Sunday, July 17, we will all go to hear him in performance with the Canandaigua Lake Music Festival.

Near the end of camp, we'll show off all we've learned by going to the Eastman School and performing in the world-class halls there. This is our jazz combo from last year, knocking the socks off the audience!

Only 15 spots remain - will YOU join us this July? www.eastmanatkeuka.com

Musicians aren't serious ALL the time! We had so much fun on this 'scavenger hunt' we played early on - getting to know each other and find our way around the beautiful Keuka College campus. Our camp strives to find a balance of working on our music and goofing off by swimming, playing soccer and other lawn games, going boating or on field trips, and just generally hanging out with our new friends from around the world! Join us! July 10-22

Last year, we got to rock out with Cello Fury - a rock cello trio with their own drummer! Katy Perry was booming throughout our gorgeous Chapel all night. What a great experience our students had to work with these professionals and even perform alongside them!

Good music will always stand the test of time. I'm often impressed at how the same piece of music will move me in many different ways depending on what is happening in my life, my day, the world, and so on... at that particular moment.
