Conor McAvinue '17 attended a month long music camp at the University of Indiana, Jacobs School of Music this summer. The camp hosted students from all areas across the globe, including Singapore, Italy, Columbia, Argentina, France, Iceland and Japan, as well as many cities within the Unites States. In addition to daily quartet sessions, private lessons, viola choir and four mandatory hours of practice each day, Conor also competed in a chamber competition, placing second. His quartet played one movement of a Franz Joseph Hayden quartet.
The University of Indiana camp also held a solo viola competition in which Conor received second place. During this intensive music camp he was privileged to perform in masterclasses for both Indiana University professors and for area professionals.
