Whether you are in band, orchestra, or choir, the UW-Green Bay music camp for high school students, entering grades 9-12, will develop your music skills as you build friendships with others who love music. Held on the UW-Green Bay campus, high school music campers will participate in rehearsals, sectionals, master classes, performances and other choice classes, and perform in a culminating public concert in the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts. Join us, with your friends, as you make music together this summer at the UW-Green Bay Summer Music Camps. Open to commuters and housing campers, register by July 14, 2014. Join us as we celebrate our 49th summer!
"It was an amazing experience for our daughter and only increased her love of music and has inspired her to continue with the violin. Her teacher was phenomenal (as was the entire staff) and this is something she will always remember and hope to do again next year!"
