Summer Music Academy

June 24-28, 2019

We offer a 5-day Summer Music Academy that provides a fun setting for students in grades K-12 to learn and grow, both musically and spiritually! Academy sessions are taught by contracted instructors who are confessing Christians and who take their mission as teachers/performers seriously. They are experts in the field who mentor tomorrow’s musicians with care and wisdom. This year’s faculty includes:

Josiah Armes, organ
Megan Brumbelow, piano
William Cooper, trumpet/brass
Claire Hodge, choir
Sarah Hornbeck, flute/woodwinds
Olga Kolpakova, strings
Cynthia Jimenez, piano
Angelyn Traylor, piano
Craig Uppercue, Orff
Natalie Wendt, handchimes
Dr. Terry Yount, organ & harpsichord

K-5th Grade – 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

Our half day program is open to elementary-age students with no previous musical experience required. Students spend their week singing in choir, as well as playing Orff instruments, handchimes, and learning about the organ. Parents and friends are invited to join us for a closing concert on Friday, June 28, at 11:30 am.
