    Cello Fury Rock Camp for Strings is an annually held music day camp run by the members of Cello Fury. Currently entering its 12th year, Cello Fury Rock Camp provides young string players an alternative musical experience beyond the traditional, classical style of playing. Each day, campers play in a rock orchestra, practice with their own rock bands, participate in masterclasses, and attend rock orchestra sectionals. Special workshops take place daily, which change from year to year. Past workshops have included music composition, songwriting, world music, improvisation, world drumming, steelpan, jazz, fiddling, fitness for musicians, music photography, martial arts, music promotion, screen printing, and more! A performance by the campers takes place on the final day of camp for parents and friends to attend.

We guide the campers through exercises that will help them conquer stage jitters, focus their message, develop a public “voice,” and exude confidence in front of an audience. We know teenagers have a lot of important things to say. We're going to help them say it with strength, verve, and personality.
