We will continue to have electronic auditions. Note there is one additional “metronome skills” audition requirement. There is no live audition. Groupings and music assignments will be decided by early July. Music and its scrolling score video will be made available via parent’s email to all campers around July 15th for practice prior to the camp. Faculty will perform one or more “Progress Check” in July after student receiving the music and before the camp begins, to ensure proper practice. This process would include every admitted camper without exception.
Application Deadlines: (Please be mindful of the firm deadlines because grouping – and your group’s music will be selected right after.)
- Scholarship applications: June 7, 2021

Family and pre-formed groups are welcome. Preferences may be indicated, but group placement is at the discretion of faculty.
Your YouTube video may not exceed 7 minutes and should represent your highest technical and musical ability. This video alone will determine your music assignments. View instructions for Camp Auditions here. You should email the link(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please set your YouTube video(s) to public or unlisted viewing, and you may delete the video after July 31. OPUS will try to accommodate your grouping preference.
The 2021 Camp fees are being determined, and they will be posted before end of February 2021. Due to more teachers in one virtual chamber coaching class and more hours in video editing, a virtual or Hybrid Camp is more costly than the cost of an in-person camp. Scholarships are available at 1) Outstanding, $200; 2) Merit, $100; and 3) Honor, $50 levels. If feeling a need, please inquire about OPUS Camp Director about In-need Scholarships. OPUS is willing to help.
