***SOLD OUT**** 11th Annual River of the West Mandolin Camp

The 11th annual River of the West Mandolin Camp is June 6 – 9, 2019, in Corbett, Oregon, located in the majestic Columbia River Gorge just 20 miles east of Portland, Oregon. The instructors, chosen for their masterful mandolin playing distinction and exceptional teaching abilities, include Paul Glasse (swing and jazz), Mike Compton (bluegrass), Tim Connell (Brazilian choro), and Camp founder Brian Oberlin (classical, swing & bluegrass). During the four days of mandolin immersion, each Camper will experience seven – 90 minute workshops from all four teachers, ensemble rehearsals and performance, structured and non-structured jams, faculty concerts, open-mic concert, bonfire jam, 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.
