Music Camp Wrapping Up Season

Posted: Updated:

Another season of music is coming to an end at the International Music Camp.

Nearly two thousand students from dozens of countries around the world participated in the series of six, one-week sessions of music, dance, and art instruction.

For the past few days, the Music Camp has been hosting a special seventh week - with adults as the students.

The shortened session ends tonight with concerts by the various adult groups.

Tim and Christine Baumann are co-directors of the International Music Camp and say the adult camp is a great way to punctuate the Music Camp season.

(Tim Baumann, International Music Camp Director) "The adult session is at the very end of the summer and it's open to anyone 21 and older so we have some students who are 21 and some who are 91 and everybody gets together for band, brass band, orchestra, barbershop choir, community choir, art, handbells, and harp, so there's something for everybody."

(Christine Baumann, International Music Camp Director) "The kids all come because they want to get better and they want to learn and grow and see their friends that have been here before. And the adults come for all the same reasons. There's a lot of them where camp is the one time a year, maybe two times, that they get to see each other and get to make music or art and get to see their friends and have a good time doing it too."

This was the first full season where the Baumanns were the directors of the Music Camp.

They took over the position in mid-season last year.
