The festival is for students ages 13-18. Campers will choose from tracks in band, choir, orchestra, and piano. The daily schedule will include ensemble rehearsals, technique class, practice time, recreation time, and much more.
“Whether you are a beginner who loves to make music or you are a serious, all-state caliber musician, the Summer Music Festival has a place for you,” says festival dean Timothy Shook. “Our camp is a great opportunity to interact with your peers and work with award-winning educators at our camp on the beautiful campus of Southwestern College.”
The tracks are led by:

· Orchestra- Amber Peterson, assistant professor of music at Southwestern College, the Mazie Barnett Kilmer Chair for String Education, and the conductor of the South Kansas Symphony.
