NHIMA Lakeside Chautauqua Music Camp (Ohio) Registrations is NOW OPEN!

Pre-registration for NHIMA members opened on the 22nd and over 40 applications have been accepted. Pre-registration for non-members opens on the 29th. This two-day camp will be held on the shores of Lake Erie at historic Lakeside retreat on AUGUST 22-23, 2022. The camp is for winds and percussion (sorry no strings) and will end the two days of rehearsal with a concert performance. Instructional fees for NHIMA members $125.00; non-members $145.00. Conductors Linda Hartley (University of Dayton) and Ozgood Cowsnowski (me), have selected a concert repertoire of some of our combined GREATEST HITS. Food and housing arrangements at the onsite Historic Hotel are available at very reasonable cost and are your best Chautauqua experience! Come on out and meet Roy Ernst the founder of NHB as he will be sitting in on flute! It is a great opportunity to meet and perform with musicians from all over the county.
