2015 Camp Dates
June 21 - July 12

Happy Holidays from CSS

Happy Holidays from Center Stage Strings! We are already busy planning another exciting summer – 2015 will be our sixth season.

This past summer, Center Stage Strings expanded from two weeks to three weeks and it was such a success, we will continue with the longer length camp in 2015. With the addition of camp dormitories at the Santa Teresita Youth Conference Center, the sky is now truly the limit for camp growth. This is a dream come true for us, as we will be able to include more campers, more performances, more lessons, and more time in the PractiCubes for our dedicated young musicians. Our official dates next summer will be June 21 - July 12, 2015. Mark your calendar!

Center Stage Strings Guest Artist Simone PorterOur Annual Benefit Concert will be held Friday, May 1, 2015 at the Colburn School, and will feature Center Stage Strings alumna, violinist Simone Porter. Simone is a rising star in the classical music world, this past year making her debut with the L.A. Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl and already soloing with orchestras around the world. Save the date! This performance is sure to be another memorable evening as we continue our tradition of excellence, inspiration and entertainment. Please join us in celebrating our incredible students, faculty, and guest star!
