About the Camp:
Center Stage Strings was founded by prize-winning violinist and passionate teacher Danielle Belen to develop the talents of young classical music students in the areas of solo and chamber music performance. Set in Three Rivers, California, at the foot of the Sequoias, the natural beauty of the surroundings and the music intertwine to create a unique summer experience. During the camp, students receive daily private lessons, participate in Master Classes, attend Guest Artist Recitals open to the public, all culminating in a student concert on the final day of camp. The Three Rivers community is very important to Center Stage Strings as many families have generously opened their homes to our students to stay during the week.
The young musicians chosen to participate in the camp will have a unique opportunity to focus purely on developing their talents without the distractions of normal, everyday life. An intense practice and lesson schedule is balanced with chamber music, socializing and recreational activities. Swimming, hiking, table tennis and movie night are just a few of the many fun activities available to the students.
In addition to the Center Stage Strings camp, students and the town of Three Rivers will enjoy Guest Artist Recitals, Faculty concerts and Master Classes presented by world class artists and teachers. Please visit our Calendar page to learn more about these upcoming events!
