BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Students from around the world are gathering at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music for a summer string camp designed to provide intensive workshops that include private lessons, performances and lectures.
The Herald-Times reports about 100 students from places as diverse as Iceland, India, Korea and the United States are gathered for the 29th year of the four-week camp.
The Summer String Academy at the Jacobs School of Music is open to students ages 12 to 18. Tuition and room and board run about $3,700.
Program director Mimi Zweig says the camp allows students to find like-minded peers and encourages them to reach for their dreams.
