From July 18-23, the School of Music is offering one of the few Harp Camps held throughout the state. This camp will be going on simultaneously with the Community School of Music and the Arts camp for chamber orchestra and youth symphony musicians. The Harp Camp is intended for intermediate to advanced students in middle school, high school or college or adults who want to participate in a week of education and enrichment on the harp.

The Piano Camp at the School of Music will take place from July 24 – August 5. Middle and high school students will take a variety of classes that include ensemble playing, composition, improvisation, theory and music history. The curriculum introduces students to areas of music that are not typically covered in private piano lessons.
