Summer Music Camp

The YCP Summer Music Experience is an enrichment program for music students.  This summer music day camp is offered to students from York, PA and surrounding areas.  

Our summer music camps offer a local opportunity for musicians to improve their skills, knowledge and enjoyment of music through daily interaction with outstanding resident and guest faculty in a friendly environment and well-appointed setting. Advancing students will be able to participate in master classes, theory and ear-training classes, workshops on topics from practice habits to conquering nerves, chamber ensembles and optional private lessons. There will be select electives to choose from as well as recreational activities. 

Remaining the same:  four specialized program tracks for musicians ages 13-18 to select from.
