Student musicians still have time to apply for scholarships to Northwest College’s 2019 summer music camp.
The 29th annual Yellowstone Summer Music Camp (YSMC) for middle and high school band and choir musicians gets underway with an afternoon registration Sunday, June 16, and ends Friday afternoon, June 21, with a concert for parents.
The YSMC attracts approximately 100 students each year from across the Rocky Mountains to the Northwest College campus in Powell.
Many scholarships are available, but some are given on a first-come, first-served basis, so early applicants have the best chance of reducing their camp costs. YSMC campers may apply for the following scholarships: Solo/Small Ensemble, Senior, Leadership, District Clinic and All-State Music. Award amounts, application instructions and eligibility requirements are available online.
Music instructors from across the U.S. provide personal attention to musicians in concert bands and choirs, jazz bands and choirs as well as select small ensemble groups. Campers are invited to enroll in special interest classes like musical theater, boomwhackers, jazz combos, guitar, studio recording, songwriting, graphic arts, fun and fitness and many more. Private lessons on all instruments and voice are also available.
Online registration and scholarship submissions are required. Full tuition for overnight campers is $595 or $395 for commuters when paid before June 1. After June 1, the price increases $15. Campus check-in is June 16.
