Summer 2019 at UVMC

From chamber music to piano games to musical theater, Summer 2019 Camps and Festivals at the Upper Valley Music Centers had a great year! Young singers honed their skills in Singing for the Stage and Musical Theater Audition Intensive. We launched two new programs, Summer Strings and Piano Olympics, giving kids a chance to work on ensemble skills with their fellow students. UVMC again partnered with AVA Gallery and Art Center for Art-estra Orchestra, combining visual and musical arts, and Crossroads Academy for Music Discovery Camp, giving young children the chance to explore many types of music.

Adults got a chance to join the fun too, with our annual Hanover Street Chamber Music Festival. UVMC also partnered with Lebanon Recreation and Parks and the Special Needs Support Center to provide music instruction at their camps.
