About the Madeline Island Music Camp:
The Madeline Island Music Camp was founded in 1985 as a one-week chamber music program for twenty students from Minnesota. Today activities include a three-week program for thirty-two talented young string players, a five-week program for sixteen advanced fellowship string players, and a one-week seminar for twenty-five woodwind musicians. These students come from across the country and around the world to study chamber music with a distinguished faculty and resident string quartets. In 2016, the Music Camp transitioned its name to Madeline Island Chamber Music – an inclusive umbrella for all of their programs that carries forward their strong history and mission.
