Camps fill summer days with music

It may be summer, but the USM School of Music's hallways are still filled with sound. While most of the college students are away for the summer, a slightly younger crowd is filling the classrooms. It's time for the annual USM Music & Theatre Camps.

The camps offer a week of training, skill developing, and good old-fashioned fun for students grades 4-12. Four different camp sessions are offered this summer with commuter and residential options. They include the Youth Band Day Camp for grades 4-6 (June 27-July 1), the Theatre Academy for grades 8-12 (June 26-July1), the Junior Music Academy for grades 7-8 (July 17-23), and the High School Music Academy for grades 9-12 (July 9-17).

The USM School of Music campers, who come from throughout Maine and northern New England, share an intensive musical experience crafting their talents, working with USM faculty, and meeting other musically-inclined youth from throughout New England. And, when the camps are complete, each group will hold a special concert to show off their skills.
