Quintet Attacca Chamber Camp for Winds

Chamber Camp for Winds

The Music Institute of Chicago presents its 15th annual summer chamber music program for woodwind and brass players. Wind quintets, trios, and quartets will participate in daily rehearsals, coachings, and group activities with Quintet Attacca, an MIC Ensemble-in-Residence and winner of the 2002 Grand Prize of the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition. The 2022 Quintet Attacca Chamber Camp for Winds will meet in person, outdoors, under shaded trees and tents with open sides at MIC's picturesque Lake Forest campus. Indoor coachings and rehearsals may be available on a case-by-case basis depending on the weather and current Covid mitigations. 


Love your instrument and want some fun experiences with others in your age range and ability level? Join Quintet Attacca for a week of exciting and independent music making! Chamber music encourages team building, friendship and musical skills. Develop your craft while playing alongside members of Quintet Attacca! We welcome flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, French horn, recorder, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, euphonium and tuba players. The best performances in chamber music come from groups who trust each other and have fun together. Quintet Attacca Chamber Camp brings it all together!
