Rockport — Bay Chamber Concerts and Music School is accepting applications for the Envision Chamber Music Workshop, a weeklong music camp for young musicians age 8 to 18. This year’s program will run Monday through Friday, Aug. 5 through 9, concluding with a free public performance for family and friends.

The daily schedule will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with an hour lunch. Daily rehearsals and coaching will be balanced with time for other musical workshops and outdoor activities.

Participants will receive coaching from Sophie and Josie Davis, Maya French, Nate Martin, Colin Wheatley, Ju-Young Lee and more. The faculty comprises young professional musicians, many of whom grew up studying music in Maine. They are excited to share their love of music and cultivate a creative and supportive environment for music-making and learning.

This year, the program is opened to younger students at a beginning-intermediate level. Students will be placed in groups based on years of experience and age. In addition to regular chamber music coaching, age-appropriate group activities will be integrated into the week.

This five-day program is open to individual applicants playing strings and piano, and pre-formed ensembles are encouraged to apply. Woodwind instrumentalists and vocalists are welcome to inquire about submitting an application. Tuition is $400 and limited scholarship assistance is available.

Applications are due April 19. For more information regarding the application process, visit baychamberconcerts.org or call 236-2823.
