Headed off to the Music Institute of Chicago’s Adult Piano Camp in June, and very excited about it.

Have been to Summerkeys twice and VCM in Victoria once — both were great, but they’re quite different from each other.

Can you elaborate- I love reviews and it helps to know the pros and cons of each before I choose/commit.

Hi Sam.
Don't know if you remember, we met I think two times now at SK in passing... I've been servicing the pianos for Summerkeys-- this will be my 3rd year working for them. Will be there again this year, perhaps we'll meet up at some point again. Enjoy your visit again this year!

Sure, I remember. Pianos sounded great last year! Especially the Steinway in the church - it's playing and sounding much better.

I was hoping to participate this year for the first time but various family-related trips made my June completely packed. Hopefully next year ...

Hi Rick,
I remember you also - I met you last summer - I stay at Carol Dennison's house on School Street and you tuned her piano while I was there.
Best it's ever sounded (and you touched up the regulation a bit, as well.)
Ditto what Sam said as well - especially the church Steinway, which used to be a beast.

Looking forward to meeting ClsscLib @ Music Institute of Chicago's (MIC) Adult Piano Camp. (I've also been to Sonata in VT; Curtis' adult chamber music long weekend program; and local chamber music intensives.) This will be my third time at the MIC program. I was going to add a ton of detail about the program, but will err on the side of minimalism unless anyone wants more info. Very interested to hear ClsscLib's perceptions after camp.

(For those who remember that I said I'd post a link to the registration, my apologies. The program accommodates 24 pianists, and fills up within hours or days after registration opens. If you're interested in Piano Duo Camp in July, I think that is still open for registration.)

Thanks to both of you for the compliments...
Hope you all enjoy this year again.
Will be going out there in two weeks or so to start getting the pianos ready for you all.

No problem, I was obsessively checking their website at the end of last year but by the time they opened the registration, I knew the dates wouldn't work for me. Do they always open the registration basically right in the beginning of the year?

The duo festival sounds tempting but, given that I'll be traveling most of June, I wouldn't have time to prepare properly. Also, looking at their daily schedule, it's not clear to me what happens during the day--they only list evening classes for the adults. I think a camp format would work better for me, it's just so hard to get away from family/work (even though my summers are pretty flexible)...

Hi Sam,
I was on an abbreviated schedule last year, but am back to my usual schedule this year. I'm doing a sort of "piano privilege lite" this year, working on pieces to accompany some of the teachers. Should be interesting!

I'm sorry we won't get a chance to meet. Registration for adult piano camp used to start later, but somehow the link got placed online in Feb. this year without any announcement. I found it one night in Feb. just browsing around. I'd say, check out the Summer Camp section every few days starting Feb. 1 to see if the link is live. MIC's adult piano camp is always scheduled over Father's Day weekend, so probably June 18-21 in 2020.

The duo program does work better for locals, since it's mostly evenings and weekends. There was a more intensive duo long weekend last year, in which I took part, but that's not offered this year. I'd like to check out some of the other camp programs in the future; thinking about Estes Park (CO) especially.

I'm sorry, too. And thanks for the info. I got the impression the duo program might be better suited for locals. I live in Illinois, but not close enough to Chicago to make evening trips.

Just noticed this thread. Will be at Summerkeys for two weeks beginning July 29th. Started going there in 2005 so I guess I am an old timer in more ways than one.
