The Department of Music and the
Center at Union
University are excited
to announce their
annual Summer Music
Camp, July 6–10, 2015.
Now in its seventh year,
the camp for students
having completed first
through eighth grades
opportunities with expert clinicians,
exposure to a wide variety of musical
experiences, and a week of fun with friends.
Students in Grades 1-5 and 6-8 will sing
in choirs directed by Dr. Betty Bedsole
and Dr. Chris Mathews, faculty of the
Department of Music at Union University.
In addition, the younger students will
have a myriad of musical experiences with
xylophones, handbells, piano, movement
(grades 1–2), recorder (grades 3–5), world
drumming, and beginning strings. Older
students will be able to choose between
handbells, piano, and guitar classes and
will also enjoy music technology seminars.
As our annual highlight, all students will hear
live performances daily by guest recitalists.
The success of the camp is founded on
the excellence of the teaching faculty
and staff, all who are well respected and
highly trained in the field of education,
particularly music education, and all who
graciously volunteer their time. For this
reason, it is our privilege to be able to
offer a camp of exceptional quality at
a very reasonable cost. We anticipate
openings will fill quickly, so register soon!
