Voices in the Laurel’s SummerVoice Music Camp will expand this year to become the Voices in the Laurel Summer Music Quest taking place from 8:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. July 30 – Aug. 3 at the First Baptist Church of Waynesville.
The camp received funding from the Young Singers Foundation Grant from Sweet Adelines International that supports worthy projects, which inspire children and youth to sing in harmony with approved, high quality music instructors.
The camp is open to singers who will be entering first to ninth grades in the fall. Campers will be divided into age groups to participate in a variety of musical experiences and learn to sing with proper vocal technique and in two and three part harmony. Groups will rotate through classes in mountain dulcimer, world drumming, and class guitar and piano as well.
Some choral numbers will include choreography. The week will end with a demonstration concert at noon. Cost is $85 per camper and includes all music, snacks, professional instructors, a T shirt, and five days of music-making. Space is limited.
