WAYNE – Middle and high school students from two Midwest states and another from the west coast attended the inaugural Summer Music Camp hosted by Wayne State College in late July.

Those present between July 23-26 were from Nebraska, Iowa and California as music faculty and local music professionals provided several learning opportunities for the students. Attendees were taught world drumming, Garage Band, music theater, band, choir, mariachi, ukulele and individual instrument or voice lessons.

According to a release, Wayne State College faculty showcased their talents with a recital in Ramsey Theatre Tuesday evening, July 24. A grand finale concert, with participants performing repertoire studied throughout the week, concluded the camp on Thursday evening, July 26. The four-day camp also offered the experience of campus living as well as kickball, a scavenger hunt, board games and a trivia contest.

The WSC Department of Music will make the Summer Music Camp an annual event. Contact the Department of Music at Wayne State College by calling 402-375-7359.
