PCP on the Move in ICELAND 2018!
Introducing the first ever PCP program abroad in July of 2018!
Iceland 2018 is a one week program open to students 15+ years of age. Extra consideration is given to those who have attended PCP for 3 or more years.
Chamber groups will spend the first 2 weeks at PCP in Vermont practicing and rehearsing to prepare for their trip to Iceland.
July 22 – August 4, 2018 Lake Dunmore, VT
August 5-11, 2018 Reykjavik, Iceland
During the 3rd week, our PCP groups will travel to Iceland, and participate in the TUF Festival which is a chamber music festival for high school students in Kopavogur, right outside of Reykjavik. Our students will play with their Icelandic counterparts, and perform in the festival. There will also be time to tour the Geysir geothermals, the Blue Lagoon, and some of Iceland’s most popular attractions.
Room and board arrangements for our campers in Iceland is still being worked out. We will have 2 Icelandic host families who will help to provide a resource, as well as a wonderful cross-cultural experience. PCP hosted 2 Icelandic young musicians this past 2017 summer in Session #2; Svava Bernhardsdottir, violist for the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra was also on faculty in Session #2 this past summer.

We did it!
In October 2017 we were finally able to purchase the large 6+ acre property across the street on Hooker Road. Plans for its development are still on the drawing board, but this extra acreage will provide amazing possibilities. Here is a winter picture of the large Lodge on the property originally built in the late 18th century.
