The Worcester Chamber Music Society is holding its annual Summer Festival camp beginning July 9 in Miriam Hall at Anna Maria College in Paxton.

The camp, which is offered July 9-13 and 16-20, caters to strings, woodwinds, and pianists ages 12 through adult and will feature coaching sessions, workshops, and concerts given by Worcester Chamber Music Society's world-class musicians and guest artists.  Students will be studying the music of Brahms 

Students are broken down into small groups, playing together and receiving coaching from WCMS members and guest artists, with the Lyric Trio, and the Boston Conservatory to the festival. Eric Hollander (viola), Na Young Ham (flute), and Ioana Cosma (harp) will perform with the faculty in a live concert on July 19.

"We are so excited to see community support for these marvelous young musicians," said festival director Krista Buckland Reisner. Last year's festival enjoyed a record turnout.

"The boundaries of age and stereotypes are forgotten here because music is universal,"Reisner said.
