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.
Hurley is the conductor of the Spivey Hall Young Artists, the training choir of the nationally renowned Spivey Hall Children’s Choir. He is currently the music specialist at Ford Elementary School in Cobb County, where he teaches general music to kindergartners through fifth graders. Kinney is the accompanist of the Spivey Hall Young Artists and has served on the faculties of Paine College, Augusta State University, Agnes Scott College, and Georgia Perimeter College.
Participants of the Spivey Hall 2012 Summer Music Camp will give a free public performance in Spivey Hall on Friday, June 15 at 2:30 p.m., to showcase their talents. All families and friends are welcome to attend. No tickets are required, and seating will be general admission.
