Summer Music Camp

The Department of Music and the Community Music Center at Union University held their ninth annual Summer Music Camp this week. This camp for children grades 1-8 provides performance opportunities with expert clinicians, exposure to a wide variety of musical experiences, and a week of fun with friends.

All students sing in either the 1-5 grade or 6-8 grade choir, rehearsing several times during each day of camp. In addition, the younger students have a myriad of musical experiences with xylophones, handbells, piano, world drumming and beginning strings. Older students also participate in a variety of musical experiences in small groups including handbells, guitar, and technology.

Below are some photos of the many activities that camp participants enjoy throughout the week.

For the past several years, the Department of Music has hosted a popular summer camp for children in grades 1-8. The department has worked with over 140 students this past week for the 2014 camp. Each year the children are divided into groups based on their ages, and they participate in choir as well as learn a variety of instruments. Activities and lessons included music technology, xylophone, handbells, piano, movement, recorder, beginning strings and guitar. This is a great summer activity to get children excited about music and the arts! Keep an eye on our Summers page next spring in order to sign up for camp early. Spots tend to fill quickly.
