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 Begins

If you have applied and are reading this before the camp, we expect to see you at Camp Clayton between 4:00pm and 5:30pm today, as described on page 4 of the Information Sheets.

If you are a parent or friend attending either concert, we will see you on Friday, 23rd January 2015 (Chamber Music Concert) or Saturday, 24th January 2015 (Orchestra Concert).  Additional details are on page 6 of the Information Sheets.

Information Sheets Reminder

With the 25th Residential Summer String Camp beginning on Sunday, 18th January 2015, it is a good time for campers and parents to take another look at the Information Sheets, found at the link below.

RSSC 2015 Information Sheets (PDF)

While all of the Information Sheets are relevant, please be particularly sure that:

  1. You have everything under “What to bring” (page 2).
  2. You know how to get there (page 3).
  3. Any guests you will bring to the concerts know the time and place for those (page 6).

Please also review the Code of Conduct you agreed to follow when you signed the application form:

RSSC 2015 Application Form (Child) (PDF)

RSSC 2015 Application Form (Adult) (PDF)

The Code of Conduct begins on page 6 of the child form and page 5 of the adult form, but is the same for all campers.

Before packing for the camp, also take a moment to read the Code of Conduct section titled “Annoying or Dangerous Items”.
