Meet the 2016 Tutors

Most tutors for 2016 have been confirmed. You can find them on the Tutors page.

Rosemary Evenhuis is taking a well-earned retirement from the camp after 25 years of tutoring and conducting. The new Preludio Strings conductor will be Dr. Maria Grenfell, who tutored violin and composition at the 2015 camp.

Along with many returning staff, we welcome new tutor Dr. Joanna Drimatis from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, who will tutor the Freycinet Orchestra First Violins.

The 25th Residential Summer String Camp has Ended

The Residential Summer String Camp is over for 2015. The final concert featured music by Václav Nelhýbel, Stephen Chin, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Paul Hindemith and others.

This camp also had more electives than any previous camp, the 25th anniversary dinner on Wednesday, a kidnapped frog and just a little rain.

We will add photographs and recordings from the camp to the Galleries by the end of February 2015.

The 26th Residential Summer String Camp is already scheduled to run from 17th January 2016 (Sunday) to 23rd January 2016 (Saturday).

Gallery Update

With the Residential Summer String Camp celebrating its 25th consecutive year in 2015, it was time to go through our archives and scan all the photographs we could find.

Visit the Galleries page, and you will now find it now covers almost every year back to the first camp in 1991.

Sometimes we only had the photograph of the whole camp. These are collected below, showing how it grew from 1991 to 2013.

If the camp remains this size, 2013 will be the last time we ask everyone to line up in the stadium. In 2014 we took four group photographs, one of each orchestra.

RSSC Website Redesign

Welcome to the new RSSC website.  We will be restoring all photographs, music and other information from the old site, but our first priority is opening applications for the 25th Residential Summer String Camp.

Pages within the new site will have a new address structure, so bookmarks to the old site will no longer work.  If you can’t find something, please add a comment to this post, or e-mail Michael.
