Sabina Strings

Summer camps for string players

August 5–8, 10am to 4pm

Northbrae Community Church at 941 The Alameda in Berkeley CA

What is different going forward?
This will not be a residential camp. You will need to organize lodging nearby.

Sabina Strings provides an opportunity to gain ensemble experience and enjoy an intensive musical retreat in northern California

Our new venue is Northbrae Community Church – a beautiful spacious location in Berkeley with easy parking, and easy access to grocery stores and restaurants. The grounds are also spacious with plenty of areas to set up chairs and stands for practising. Food and accommodation are not included, but it’s in an area close to many hotels and lots of airbnb’s.

The camp was created especially for beginning and intermediate adult string players (violin, viola, and cello).

We offer coaching in chamber music groups, larger ensembles and other classes. Music is mailed out in advance.

Body Mapping and Alexander Technique will inform much of what we do, encouraging awareness of playing our instruments with freedom of movement, and learning how to deal with the excitements and stresses of performance in a supportive situation.,



There is so much love and patience from the coaches at camp, and so many people to love and cheer on! During these difficult times around the world and here in the US, being together in a community of people who work together to create music collaboratively is inspiring and challenging and ultimately wonderful.
