MMR provides a non-competitive but challenging curriculum for adult singers and instrumentalists. The week-long festival workshop includes orchestra, band, string orchestra, chorus, jazz big band, chamber ensembles and electives in an hospitable, “Retreat” atmosphere. The strength of MMR lies at the exciting intersection of a committed, supportive, professional faculty, thrilling repertoire, and enthusiastic campers.
Since 1983, MMR campers have found the experience to be an invigorating, instructive and rewarding part of their musical lives. They return from “camp” each year with more confidence, improved skills, exposure to new repertoire, new friends, and greater enthusiasm for music making.
Midsummer Musical Retreat has adopted the goal of providing rich musical experiences for the adult musician... a music camp for grown-ups.
