Summer Music Camp

July 22-27, 2018

The UNC Pembroke Department of Music is excited to offer our very first Summer Music Camp in 2018!  Students in grades 9-12 (including those entering 9th grade in Fall 2018 and just-graduated seniors) will choose their large ensemble (concert band, choir, string orchestra, or piano), and will also have opportunities for small ensembles and other classes and activities.  Private lessons with UNCP music faculty will be available.  A final concert will be given on the last day of camp.
