About the In-Person Summer Camp:
During the York Symphony Orchestra’s in-person music composition camp, join composer Chris Whittaker for a week-long immersion into the craft of music composition. Let’s discover together more about the amazing worlds of harmony, melody, and counterpoint as we write our own Opus One! Individual instruction by Chris assisted by fellow composer/pianist and educator, Matt Monticchio. The week culminates in a performance of student’’s original works attended by family and friends. Whatever style of music you write or enjoy, come and discover your musical voice!
Chris & Matt lead both morning and afternoon classes, conducted through an in-person classroom at Logos Academy. Students will engage with the fundamentals of analysis, form, harmony and counterpoint. Each student will create an original composition to be premiered at the end of the week. Invite your family and friends to join the concert!
