We hope this finds you and your loved ones healthy and well as our communities continue to exercise safe and smart practices with physical distancing.
Many thanks to those who have reached out about Pacific Blue 2020 - we are looking forward to our 24th season of offering a fun and inspiring week of middle school music-making. More than ever, we musicians are all craving to be in the same shared space again! We are simply "on hold" for the time being until the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District begins to approve summer facilities permits, which is dependent upon the orders of state and local governing agencies. We want to ensure that we are being responsible and creating "safe spaces" (emotionally, socially, and physically) for all of our musicians.
We will update everyone as soon as we have more information. Please stay tuned, and be safe!
Established in 1996, The Pacific Blue Music Camp is a one-week day camp located in Santa Monica, CA for middle school instrumental musicians. This unique experience offers daily instruction for young band and orchestra students in a large ensemble setting as well as within sectionals and master classes. Students have the opportunity to work with established music educators and professional musicians who focus on core fundamentals of individual pedagogical techniques as well as large ensemble dynamics and practices. Rehearsals are led by veteran conductors who are sensitive to the needs of developing musicians to build confidence and pride in the art of music performance.
The Pacific Blue Music Camp is an ideal transitional activity for the young musician who is entering middle school. In addition, current middle school music students are offered more opportunities to both continue their individual advancement as well as to experience leadership roles. No matter the proficiency level of your middle school-aged musician, Pacific Blue will offer a memorable experience for all!
