Junior Music Program

AGES 10-16

Faculty members guide students to develop their unique musical talents in a supportive and inspirational community. The camp curriculum is varied, comprehensive, and fun: students immerse themselves in music through private lessons, chamber ensembles, orchestra, choir, jazz improvisation classes, and more. All students participate in creating an original musical theater piece by working together as composers, cast members, pit musicians, and visual artists.
