Most Popular Option Class: Camp Chorus

The 2016 Camp Chorus will present your favorite tunes in a performance that will inspire your parents and friends. This option choice class will perform in Friday's Weidner Concert in spectacular style!

Instrumental Ensembles This year's instrumental ensembles will explore diverse and exciting new repertoire, from world music, to jazz, pop and folk. This is a great option class for campers who want to stay on their instrument for an option hour and who want to learn new music that is different than the music they are playing on the concert.
