2nd Annual Great Lakes Mandolin Camp

REGISTRATION IS OPEN.  The 2nd annual Great Lakes Mandolin Camp on September 13 – 15, 2018 will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The instructors are Camp founder Brian Oberlin (swing, bluegrass and classical), Don Stiernberg (swing and jazz) and Emory Lester (bluegrass).  During the three days of mandolin immersion, each Camper will experience six workshops from all three teachers, ensemble rehearsals, mass mandolin orchestra rehearsals, Q & A sessions with all teachers, a special workshop learning the teacher’s favorite “licks and tricks”, structured and non-structured jams, and perform with the mass orchestra and ensemble of their choice at the student and faculty concert.  The maximum student capacity is 45, which makes for smaller classes from some of the best mandolin players and teachers in the world.
