Local Students Attend Iowa Summer Music Camp At University Of Iowa
More than 130 talented instrumentalists of high school and junior-high age will participate in the Iowa Summer Music Camp June 10-16 at the University of Iowa School of Music.
The camp's three large ensembles -- two concert bands and an orchestra -- will present a free public concert at the end of the week's activities at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 16, in Hancher Auditorium on the UI campus.
The students come from all across Iowa and eight other states. Local students from (name of school) attending the camp are (names, grades and instruments listed below):
As part of the music camp experience, distinguished conductors will lead the ensembles in their rehearsals and the June 16 concert. Mark Camphouse from George Mason University will direct the Gold Band. Margene Pappas from the Oswego, Ill., Community Schools will direct the Black Band.
William LaRue Jones, director of orchestral studies at the UI School of Music, will conduct the orchestra.
The Iowa Summer Music Camp is sponsored by the UI School of Music and directed by Kevin Kastens, who also directs the UI Hawkeye Marching Band. It offers a variety of musical experiences for talented young musicians who have completed grades 8-12. All participants were recommended by their school music teachers.
The musical instruction available at the camp is designed to go beyond that available to students at their home schools. In addition to ensemble rehearsals and performances, classes are offered in music theory, music appreciation, class piano, introduction to electronic music and music computer programs, instrumental conducting, and double-reed making for oboe and bassoon players.
The School of Music is part of the Division of Performing Arts in the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. You may visit the UI School of Music web site at http://www.uiowa.edu/~music/.
