CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – The strains of classical music will fill the campus of Wilson College for two weeks in June and July, as dozens of professional and amateur musicians rehearse and perform free concerts as part of the annual Summertrios music camps.
The first camp runs from June 20 through 27 and the second is June 27 through July 4. During those weeks, camp faculty – professional musicians from around the world – and amateur musicians who play strings, winds and piano come together to spend time rehearsing and performing chamber music.
The Summertrios camps performances are held on campus and are free and open to the public. Each week, the camp faculty performs several times and the participants also perform.
Faculty concerts are scheduled for June 23, 24 and 30, and July 1. Performances will begin at 8 p.m. in Thomson Hall’s Alumnae Chapel.
Participant concerts are scheduled for June 25 and 26, and July 2 and 3 at 8 p.m. in Sarah’s Coffeehouse, which is located on the lower level of Lenfest Commons.
Concerts will include piano trios, string quartets and woodwind quintets.
Approximately 70 musicians are registered for the first week-long camp, according to Kathy Lehman, Wilson’s director of conferences and special events.
Wilson has hosted the Summertrios program since 2002. Based in New York, Summertrios was formed in 1990 to provide opportunities for adult amateur musicians to play, study, perform and listen to chamber music; and to create a community of musicians.
