Placements & Faculty

Placements, Auditions, and Schedules 
Camp Bernstein students do not audition for placement. Central Camp students complete a placement process on the first day of the session to determine group and ensemble assignments as well as daily schedule. Detailed information on placements, auditions, and a typical daily schedule is provided following enrollment.

The Teachers
Blue Lake’s faculty members come from universities, colleges, professional ensembles, and private and public schools from around the country. They serve as motivators and role-models for the campers by teaching artistry, discipline, and appreciation of formal study. In addition to instructing small and large group classes, faculty members regularly demonstrate mastery of their craft through exhibition and performance in concert, master class, studio demonstration, and recital settings.
