River of the West Mandolin Camp 2013

River of the West Mandolin Camp 2013

Portland, Ore. — The fifth annual River of the West Mandolin Camp will be held June 6-9, 2013 at The Menucha Retreat Center overlooking the spectacular Columbia River Gorge just 20 miles east of Portland, Oregon.

An all-star line-up of instructors includes Don Stiernberg, Carlo Aonzo, Radim Zenkl, and Brian Oberlin.

Aside from the scheduled workshops encompassing jazz, swing, bluegrass, Italian classical, Latin, and solo mandolin, there will be faculty and student concerts. Everyone will have the opportunity to attend all of the workshops and play in an ensemble with the instructor of his/her choice.

The maximum Camp capacity is 45 students (ages 14 and older). Although the Camp is intended for all levels of mandolinists, absolute beginners (people who have no idea of how to hold or play anything on the mandolin) are encouraged to take private lessons before attending the Camp. In other words, an attendee at the Camp is someone who can, at least, play an open G, C, and D chord, keep a rhythm, and have basic knowledge of how to read tablature or music notation.

As a sell-out is anticipated, early registration is strongly encouraged.

The 2013 River of the West Mandolin Camp is sponsored in part by Collings Guitars and Mandolins.
