Everyday, you are assigned a chamber ensemble, music and a coach. You will rehearse from 9-11:45 a.m. (with breaks). Lunch is from noon-1 p.m. There is special master class sessions each day at 1 p.m. The ensemble meets again and rehearses from 2:15-4 p.m. (with a break). Dinner is served at 5 p.m. The program starts at 7 p.m. Freelancing is done after the program.

The next day, you are assigned a different ensemble, different music, and a different coach. Wednesday is the short day. You rehearse in the morning. The special session is at 1 p.m., and the program is at 2:15 p.m. That night is a free night. We have gone to local independent league baseball games, and there are several wonderful restaurants nearby. Some people spend the evening at the beach.
