The 9th annual River of the West Mandolin Camp is June 8 – 11, 2017, in Corbett, Oregon, located in the Columbia River Gorge just 20 miles east of Portland, Oregon. The instructors, chosen for their masterful mandolin playing distinction and exceptional teaching abilities, include Don Stiernberg (swing and jazz), Carlo Aonzo (classical), Jordan Ramsey (bluegrass), and Camp founder Brian Oberlin (swing and bluegrass). During the four days of mandolin immersion, each Camper will experience workshops from all four teachers, ensemble rehearsals and performance, structured and non-structured jams, faculty concerts, bonfire jams, meals, and lodging. The maximum student capacity is 52 which makes for smaller classes from some of the best mandolin players and teachers in the world.
