Rockport — Bay Chamber Concerts and Music School is accepting applications for the Envision Chamber Music Workshop, a weeklong intensive music camp for youth age 12 to 18.

Participants will receive coaching from Sophie and Josie Davis, Maya French, Nate Martin, Colin Wheatley and Ju-Young Lee. The faculty comprises young professional musicians, many of who 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’s program will run Monday through Friday, Aug. 6 through 10, with a free public performance for family and friends on the final evening of the program. The daily schedule is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with an hour break in the middle of the day for lunch. Three hours of rehearsal and coaching each day will be balanced with time for other musical workshops, concerts and outdoor activities.

This five-day program is open to individual applicants playing strings and piano, and pre-formed ensembles are encouraged to apply. New this year, woodwind instrumentalists and vocalists also are welcome to apply on a space available basis. Tuition is $400 and limited scholarship assistance is available.

The application and a non-refundable $50 application fee are due April 15. For more information regarding the application process, visit baychamberconcerts.org or call 236-2823.
