Absolutely Ottawa!

Absolutely Ottawa!
Ottawa, KS

Every year during the month of June the sounds of hundreds of young string players fill the charming Victorian town of Ottawa, Kansas, located 45 minutes southwest of Kansas City on I-35. Players at all levels of abilities are welcomed into one or more of four programs on the lovely campus of Ottawa University. 2015 marks the 41st Anniversary of the founding of our summer programs. Absolutely Ottawa! Alumni are invited to a reunion and several special events.
