Clayton State University’s Spivey Hall has a handful of spots remaining for this year’s Summer Music Camp… a rare opportunity for young singers to make their dreams real and perform on the stage of the world-famous Spivey Hall.
The camp will run from Monday, June 10 through Friday, June 14, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., each day. Registration is now open and the deadline to register is Monday, June 3.
Spivey Hall’s Summer Music Camp is designed for both boys and girls who will be in fourth to seventh grade in the 2013/2014 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. Teacher recommendations are required.
Students will receive a comprehensive music experience while working with music specialists Craig Hurley and Marcena Kinney, and will feature choral singing, guitar instruction, class piano, playing Orff instruments and tone chimes, folk dancing, and performing in Spivey Hall. Summer Music Camp will be located 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 Monday, June 3. New members of the Spivey Hall Young Artists program can register for a reduced rate of $125. Discounts are available for families registering multiple students. A late registration fee of $175 per student will be accepted after June 3 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.
