The University of Nevada, Reno's 53rd annual Lake Tahoe Music Camp invites student musicians ranging from middle school through high school to participate in an incredible week of music-making and fun in the beautiful setting of Lake Tahoe. Held July 26-Aug. 1, 2009, at the Nevada State 4-H Camp in Stateline, Nev., the overnight camp gives participants the opportunity to participate in concert bands, jazz bands and a variety of wind and percussion chamber ensembles during an action-packed week of rehearsals, clinics and concerts.

Evening activities will include faculty and student recitals, clinics and performances by University of Nevada, Reno music faculty, and a variety of recreational and team-building activities. Students will receive small group instruction and optional private lessons from outstanding northern Nevada music educators, and will perform in ensembles under the direction of some of the finest music educators in the country. In addition to developing excellence in musical performance, students also make lasting friendships with their fellow campers and cultivate important connections with educators and professionals in the music community.

Tuition is $500 per camper and two optional private lessons are available for $25 each.

Lake Tahoe Music Camp features seven days and six nights of jazz and classical music workshops, clinics, performances, mentoring and instruction with award-winning University faculty, guest conductors, professional chamber and jazz musicians and more all on the shores of beautiful Lake Tahoe!

  • two optional private half-hour lessons for $25 each (not included in tuition)
  • All-Camp Concert presented by campers for family and friends Saturday, Aug. 1 at 9 a.m., at Kelly Amphitheatre

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
