Laura and Chris Stoutenborough: Summer Clarinet Camp 2017
As a young musician, I remember my excitement in attending a high school Honor Band weekend. It was a unique opportunity to meet other enthusiastic musicians, perform challenging music, learn from new teachers, and grow as a performer. My husband, Chris, also a professional musician, had similar pivotal enrichment experiences as a young musician. Now, as teachers, we were very excited to create a new summer clarinet camp, to share what we are passionate about with a new generation of enthusiastic students.
