» Camps & Festivals

High school students can come to Chapman to experience college-level performance and learning opportunities throughout the year. Whether it's a festival for strings, double reeds, choirs, or honor bands, or summer camps for choral and instrumental musicians, you can learn from our renowned music faculty and other working music professionals to develop your music skills and make new friends. 

Summer Music Camps

Chapman University offers week-long summer music camps for students entering grades 9–12, featuring enriching workshops, electives, guest speakers and performance opportunities. Check back in late fall for information about summer Choral Music and Instrumental Music Camps (brass, woodwinds, and percussion emphasis).

Led by Southern California’s preeminent music faculty, these day-long instrumental and choral intensives offer high school musicians pre-professional training on the beautiful Chapman University campus, culminating in a performance in Musco Center for the Arts. Past festivals include the Choral Festival, Double Reed Day, Honor Band Festival, and Strings Festival.
