Early-Bird Registration is Now Open
Clayton State University’s world-famous Spivey Hall has announced the 2012 dates for its annual Summer Music Camp.
The camp will run from Monday, June 11 through Friday, June 15, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., each day. Registration is now open and there is an early-bird registration discount before Mar. 2. The deadline to register is Friday, May 25.
Spivey Hall’s Summer Music Camp is designed for both boys and girls who will be in fourth to seventh grade in the 2012/2013 school year. Participation is not limited to previous choral experience; however, students need to be able to sing on pitch (in tune) before camp begins. Music teacher recommendations are required.
The camp will see students working with music specialists Craig Hurley and Marcena Kinney, and will feature singing, playing Orff instruments and tone chimes, piano lab, folk dancing, and performing in Spivey Hall. Summer Music Camp will be located primarily at Spivey Hall, on the campus of Clayton State. Some activities will take place in the Music Education Building. All participants will check in and out from Spivey Hall each day of camp.
The cost to attend Summer Music Camp is $150 per student, due in full before the registration deadline of Friday, May 20. The early-bird discount is $135 before March 2. Current and new members of the Spivey Hall Young Artists program can register for a reduced rate of $125. A late registration fee of $175 per student will be accepted after May 25 on a space-available basis. Checks may be made payable to Clayton State University and mailed to Spivey Hall with the registration form, payment form, waiver, and music teacher’s recommendation.
