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.

Students, Employees Gather to Cheer for USA in World Cup

The Office of Student Leadership and Engagement invited faculty, staff and students to gather in the Bowld Student Commons to watch the USA vs. Germany World Cup game today. While the USA didn’t have to win to advance to the next stage, everyone was rooting for a win. We had students decked out in red, white and blue and waving flags, and many employees spent their lunch break watching the excitement. We won’t spoil the game, in case you have it DVR-ed at home!
