Music & Theatre offering summer camp for high-schoolers
The Heidelberg University School of Music & Theatre is again offering a summer camp for students in grades 8-12. Campers can sign up for a residential experience or commute to Heidelberg’s campus. Campers will get to experience singing in a choir, playing in a band and acting on stage.
Camp dates are June 5-10. The deadline to sign up for the camp has been extended to Sunday May 15. Residential tuition is $550 and includes all meals and housing. Commuter tuition is $450 and includes lunch and dinner. All campers receive admission for two to the camp performance on Friday, June 10, one camp T-shirt, and all supplies required for sessions as part of the tuition. A $50 deposit is due on May 15 with the balance due June 1.
According to camp organizer Dr. Elizabeth Tracy, director of Heidelberg’s Community Music School, the camp format is similar in design to an honor music festival. Participants will have the opportunity to customize their schedule by choosing up to two tracks among choir, band, musical theatre and theatre, and a number of elective seminars. The camp experience will culminate with a performance at Gundlach Theatre on June 10.
