NHMC is dedicated to fostering lifelong musicianship and love of traditional music through an immersive week-long educational program for musicians of all skill levels. Intensive, workshop-style classes encourage musical growth by both challenging and supporting students to take their musicianship to a new level.
Our goal is to create a vibrant and dynamic musical community in which students and faculty learn from one another and enjoy playing together in formal and informal settings – during the week of camp and beyond.
Northeast Heritage Music Camp was founded in 2005 by Peter Langston and Ken Perlman, who co-directed the camp from 2005-2011. In 2012 they passed the camp to the Board of Directors who started it anew in 2013. What a wonderful vision Peter and Ken had, and what a special camp they created. We are most appreciative and thankful to them for all they have done to make NHMC such a warm, musical community and, in continuing the camp, we strive to maintain that vision.
