Course Detail: CAA404 - Indiana Clarinet Experience (Grades 7-12)

The Indiana Clarinet Experience (ICE) is a six-day overnight summer program for clarinetists in grades 7-12 to have a fun musical experience with a dedicated faculty of young, energetic professionals. The camp takes place in Fort Wayne, Indiana at the Purdue University Fort Wayne School of Music where students spend the week on campus with fellow participants. 

What to expect at ICE 2021
  • Improve at the clarinet. There will be lots of information presented to help you excel at the clarinet, and plenty of time to practice so that you master all of these new concepts. 
  • Meet new friends. ICE attracts students from all over Indiana and beyond. Many friendships are formed throughout the week. Group activities outside of class time will encourage making new friendships that last. 
  • Play cool music. No one wants to play cool music more than the faculty do. Many of them bring their own arrangements and compositions to spice up the repertoire for the small and large ensemble concerts. 
  • Play cool instruments. This is your chance to learn more about the clarinet instrument family. You can play E-flat clarinet, alto clarinet, bass clarinet, and contra bass clarinet. The end of the camp includes a clarinet choir concert, where people will play all kinds of strange clarinets, big and small. 
  • Play cool music for other people. Part of the camp experience includes performing a final concert at PFW School of Music. Playing music for ourselves is fun, but playing for other people is even more satisfying. 
  • Work with an energetic and passionate faculty.  Students will have the opportunity to work in a small setting with a dedicated faculty of professional clarinetists and teachers. Additionally, students will hear performances by innovative clarinetists in the professional field. 
  • A summer to remember. It's only a week, but the memories will last much longer. Many of our participants look forward to returning each summer to meet friends from around the state and beyond.
