This past September, Chautauqua Institution played host to an unforgettable musical rendezvous: The Music Camp for New Horizons and Other Musicians. From September 11-15, 2023, the air was filled with the harmonious strains of advanced bands, orchestras, jazz ensembles, German bands, and several other vibrant ensembles.
Musicians from all over converged in this idyllic setting, not just to refine their craft under the guidance of seasoned instructors but also to celebrate the spirit of community. Participants resonated with shared chords of passion and camaraderie, creating lasting memories and connections.
The performances were a sight to behold, set against professional venues that only added to the aura of the event. But it wasn't just about the music. With the backdrop of Chautauqua, attendees were enveloped in an ambiance of natural beauty and cultural richness.
For over a century, Chautauqua Institution has been a beacon for those seeking enlightenment, personal growth, and a sense of community. This music camp was yet another testament to its legacy, harmonizing personal growth with the sheer joy of music. Those who were part of this majestic event have returned enriched, both in spirit and in skill. One can only eagerly anticipate what next year's gathering holds in store!
We are immensely grateful for the success of the Music Camp for New Horizons and Other Musicians held on April 24-26, 2023, at the picturesque Meadowbrook Inn in Blowing Rock, NC.
