Lee University to host 2019 Summer Music Camp

Posted

The Lee University 2019 Summer Music Camp will take place June 24 through 29 for rising ninth-graders through rising college freshmen.
 “Whether a student has already made plans to continue their musical education at the college or university level, or simply desires to have the inspiring, fun, and significant musical experience of a lifetime, the Lee University Summer Music Camp is the place to be,” said Laud Vaught, camp director.
 Campers will have the opportunity to choose from piano, choir, chamber strings, band, or jazz ensemble tracks. Study in music theory and music history is provided, as well as opportunities to focus on specialized areas of interest.
Members of the Lee University faculty and visiting professionals serve as camp faculty, while the camp staff is chosen from graduates or current students of Lee’s School of Music.
 Piano track campers will have the additional opportunity to engage with the Lee University Piano Festival, which is being held simultaneously. This is the 15th consecutive year the university has hosted the Festival, which provides a chance for internationally acclaimed piano artists from around the world to gather to perform, interact with, and teach students.
 Concerts, which will be held each evening at 7:30, spotlight piano, vocal, instrumental and jazz music and feature musicians from Lee University as well as local professional musicians. 
 On Tuesday, the Piano Festival Faculty will perform in Squires Recital Hall, Jazz Faculty on Wednesday in the Dixon Center, and the Lee Opera Company will present “Scenes” Thursday in the Dixon Center. All concerts are free and open to the public.
 “We invite you to take advantage of these wonderful arts-related events taking place right here in Cleveland,” said Vaught.
 The cost for the residential camp is $545. Campers are housed in campus dorms and meals are served in the university dining hall. A commuter option for Cleveland area residents is available at a reduced cost and these non-resident campers will have the option of purchasing a meal card for the dining hall.
 A limited number of scholarships are still available, including $250 for students chosen for their 2018-2019 high school All-State ensemble or the MTNA equivalent.
 For more information, contact the School of Music at musiccamp@leeuniversity.edu or call (423) 614-8244.
