The first inaugural Summer Strings 2011! Music Camp held by the Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra concluded on Saturday, June 18th with great success! An outstanding final recital capped an exciting week of sectional, technique and orchestral instruction for 23 area students. Ranging from rising fourth through rising eleventh graders, these students worked to perfect their sound and quality of play, and then had master classes in fiddle instruction which they loved! Each day the students were able to enjoy a recital by invited musicians from the greater Atlanta Metro area and could then blow off some steam with fun recreational time. Each afternoon focused orchestra/ensemble play, and given the results of the final concert, it would appear as though they learned their lessons well. Instruction was provided by JCSO principal musicians, along with Concertmaster Adelaide Federici and Maestro J. Wayne Baughman who directed the orchestra. Special thanks to Mt. Pisgah Christian School who allowed us to rent their beautiful facilities, along with Bryan Hatmaker, Mt. Pisgah Director of Band and school liaison to the camp. Special thanks to the corporate sponsors RBC Bank, CIBAVISION, Gwinnett Medical Center Duluth, Optech Monett and Champps Americana who helped make this possible.
