New Camper Auditions

Camp registration for July 20-25 is currently canceled. If circumstances change significantly, we will let you know!

Students who are not currently enrolled in the Duke University String School are welcome to audition to participate in the camp.  All students are required to have at least 1 year of private instruction on their instrument (usually at least 2 years of lessons), and are currently taking private lessons.

New Students:  please send a video recording to, containing a scale and a solo piece which best demonstrates your ability.  (High quality cell phone videos are fine).  Please refer to the audition requirements for our ensembles listed here.  The due date for video auditions for the Early Bird rate is May 31st (updated).  Early submissions are welcome and encouraged for fast feedback! Submissions after May 31st are welcome as well, though we cannot guarantee spots will be available and the Regular Registration fee will apply.

Please be aware that students are placed in ensemble based on their ability level, not age.
