About CalCap

The goal of the CALCAP Chamber Music Workshop is to provide each participant with a diverse and enjoyable chamber music experience. Each day, participants are assigned to a new group and piece. Following intensive rehearsal and coaching, the group performs a portion of the work at an afternoon or evening concert.

The workshop is open to intermediate and advance performers on violin, viola, cello, bass, piano, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and French horn. Workshop participants include adults and college students 18 and over.

The 2 one-week-long workshops 
take place on the tree-covered campus of California State University, Sacramento, located on the banks of the American River adjoining the 23-mile long American River Parkway.

All facilities are fully air-conditioned. 

Sacramento's vibrant restaurant and theater scene are all easily accessible. Participation in the workshop can be combined with visits to the nearby Napa Valley or other wine regions, the San Francisco Bay Area, Gold Country, or Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada.
