San Diego, Calif. — The 2019 San Diego Classical Mandolin Camp, led by classical mandolinist, composer and educator Chris Acquavella, will take place August 19 – August 25, 2019 at the Town and Country Resort Hotel.
The 8th Annual San Diego Classical Mandolin Camp will explore the depth and breadth of the classical mandolin, from baroque to modern times, through five days of classes, orchestra rehearsals, and evening concerts.
SDCMC is very excited to welcome this year’s artistic staff, Chris Acquavella, Vincent Beer-Demander, and Marilynn Mair. The San Diego Classical Mandolin Camp strives to create a fun musical experience for mandolinists of all ages and abilities. Chris, Vincent and Marilynn are fantastic teachers and performers.

Throughout the week, there will be featured artist concerts with the final evening culminating with the SDCMC orchestra performance.
