Idaho Orchestra Institute

IOI 2022 will be back at Sawtooth Methodist Camp from July 3-8!  

It is with great pleasure that we announce the Idaho Orchestra Institute will happen this summer! Making music with you is one of the highlights of the season for our entire faculty. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to do just that this summer.

Program Fee: $675 covers tuition, housing and meals

Camp is held at Sawtooth Camp near Fairfield, Idaho 

The summer of 2022 will be the sixth year of the Idaho Orchestra Institute. This six day intensive experience is designed for college and advanced high school musicians. Led from the podium by Robert Franz, with a focus on developing the complete artist, young musicians will explore a major orchestral masterpiece while developing a deeper connection with their core artist. Through rehearsals, sectionals, daily yoga and open dialogue students will have the opportunity to delve into repertoire that will establish strong performance practices for years to come. This July, we will explore Dvorak’s Symphony No.7. 

Our internationally renowned faculty will coach and mentor participants throughout the week. Time will be set aside to connect with and learn from these leading professionals.

The week will culminate in a performance back in Boise on Friday, July 8.

This year’s instrumentation will be:

2 flutes (2nd flute doubles on piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns

2 trumpets, 3 trombones, 1 timpani

24 violins, 10 violas, 8 cellos, 4 basses
