Music Camp

June 8-12, 2020

Music Camp combines a high-level musical academy experience with a week of summer fun. You'll study one-on-one with inspiring faculty mentors who are active concert performers. Besides challenging yourself to achieve a "personal best," you'll gain a new understanding of the arts as they relate to worship and your walk with God.

You will enjoy private instruction and master classes with top Cedarville music faculty. You will get a jump on the college music scene with theory instruction, rehearsals, and a recital. By the end of the week, you will have a clear sense of what it's like to study music at the university level.

On the final day of camp, you will have the opportunity to perform in a concert for family and friends.

Music Camp is open to musically talented Christian students between the ages of 14 and 18.
