American Music Institute is proud to announce that its 2015 AMI Summer Camp was successfully held June 22-26 at AMI’s Clarendon Hills campus. Over 50 students ages 5-18 years old participated from all over the Chicagoland area. Each day consisted of 5 instructional & academic classes, a lunch period and a performance class where students listened to faculty and their fellow students perform.
“It was a delight to hear AMI halls beaming with 50+ new student compositions and music making, from chamber music to orchestra. The final concert on June 26th was a treat,” said Remus Badea, AMI Executive Director.
Around fifty young artists from around the Chicagoland area came together for the AMI Summer Music Camp from June 22-26th at the American Music Institute – Clarendon Hills Campus. Students of all levels and instruments learned about history of music, composed individual music, participated in chamber music and orchestra, culminating with a fantastic final performance on Friday, June 26th.
“My kid loved the camp, it was a great experience and we’ll definitely do it again next year!” said Samyra M., a parent of a camper.
“Kids are already saying that they will miss the camp and they wish it can go on for a couple more weeks,” noted AMI Violin/Piano Instructor Kassia Frantz.
AMI provides music education for all ages, levels, instruments and genres, and AMI students represent a wide range of ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds from across the Chicagoland area. We believe that music is a critical part of our children’s education and aim to provide scholarships and outreach programs for all children throughout the Chicagoland community.
We hope to expand music education offerings to kids throughout the area each and every summer through summer music camps at this location and many others.
