The best way to learn music
is to be immersed in it. This is what happens at Border Music Camp. For a week, you live and breathe music - nothing else.
Who goes to Border Music Camp?
People like you! People who are passionate about music - people who love to play their instrument and love to hang out with other musicians. Most Campers are school students, but Campers are of all ages - from 8 to 80.
What happens at Camp?
We play all morning in the large ensembles. You'll be led by our superb conductors and tutors, who are as passionate about music as you are. In the afternoons you can play a huge variety of music in the elective sessions. You'll hear (and possibly play) exciting new music written by our composer-in-residence. You'll enjoy the exhilaration of performing in public concerts. All of this in a friendly, happy, unforgettable community of musicians.
How big is the Camp?
About 225 musicians, and 60 staff.
When is it?
The Camp starts on Sunday 2 July 2023, and finishes with the final concert on Saturday 8 July 2023.
