National Cello Institute
June 25 - July 1, 2017
Claremont, California, USA
This summer will mark the 42nd National Cello Institute. Over
the years, this has proven to be a truly unique experience for cello students
of all ages and levels. Because enrollment at the NCI is almost exclusively
cello students, we have the unique situation of having the most comprehensive
program at the same time as having one of the smallest overall enrollments of
any institute in the country.
Over 150 cello students regularly attend the NCI. The students generally range
in age from 5 to 18 and in level from French Folk Song to the major solo
repertoire. We also usually have a class of enthusiastic adult students. This
means that no matter what your age or level is, there are going to be classes
at the NCI that will suit you perfectly.
Plan to attend the National Cello Institute this year. It will be an experience
you will enjoy and remember forever!
The National Cello Institute is not like typical "Day Camps" in two important ways. First we do not have camp counsellors to lead the children from place to place so they must be able to find their own way around the campus. Second we do not fill every hour with activities so the students must be able to fill their off hours productively. For these reasons all young children who attend the NCI are usually accompanied by a parent or other adult.
