Summer Programs Begin July 6

Summer School of Music

Continue your progress from the school year with the Summer School of Music! Private lessons will be offered in multiple locations on a flexible schedule. For families uncomfortable with in-person lessons during pandemic conditions, online lessons may also be an option. Lessons are available July 6 through August 15, with scholarship assistance available for families who need it.

Suzuki Summertime Strings

Students who currently study in the Suzuki Method may participate in the Suzuki Day Camp with instruction from Ms. Fetysenko. This camp located at the Great Lakes Center for the Arts offers private lessons along with a variety of group activities. Students studying violin, viola, or cello in the Suzuki method, currently in book one, are eligible to participate in this camp.

Advanced Chamber Music Festival
with The Cummings Quartet

Looking for a way to enhance your musical abilities? Chamber music is an invigorating form of music in which students play one to a part and work independently as an ensemble. The students will have multiple performing experiences as part of this day camp. The Cummings Quartet, the professional performing ensemble of the DGSP, is featured as the faculty for this chamber music experience.

Back to School Camp

Finish summer with a strings refresher while preparing for a new school year! Students participate in a variety of classes at the pre-Intermediate and pre-Junior Orchestra levels with DGSP faculty.

DGSP Virtual Concert Week

Performances by students from school classes, private lessons, string quartets, the Suzuki Program, and the Dorothy Gerber Youth Orchestra with music from The Cummings Quartet.

This concert features music including Offenbach’s “Can-Can,” Dvorak’s “American” String Quartet, Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, and the annual concert finale of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy."
