The York Symphony Orchestra will hold its 13th annual summer music camp, My Opus Magnum, July 22-26 at Logos Academy in York.
The camp will offer youth musicians in grades 3 through 12 the opportunity to learn the steps of creating a song, preparing it on music manuscript, and filling out the necessary forms to copyright the created material. The camp emphasizes a hands-on creative approach with group instruction on individual keyboards and computer software as well as personalized coaching through the songwriting process.
Highly qualified instructors will offer level specific instruction (new this year) and will creatively guide elementary to high school students through the process of composing a masterwork all their own. The camp includes dynamic individual coaching using computer software and keyboards.
Camp will conclude with a performance of each students composition and pizza party. Each student will also receive two vouchers to a York Symphony Concert for the 2013/2014 Season. Students of all levels of ability are encouraged to attend however, it is suggested that they have some private lesson experience with the instrument of their choice.
