Join us for a summer of color!

This year, our camps are themed CANVAS – a focus on music, color, timbre, texture, culture and more.

*Scholarships Available*     *All Abilities Welcome*

This summer, our students will get hands on: from tie-dying our own shirts to making instruments, we’ll be embracing life to the fullest! Each camp will have field trip opportunities such as performances and workshops.
