Bishop Nedi Rivera offers this description of Ascension’s first-ever Music Camp, also the first camp on the summer schedule, from June 23-28, for campers in grades 3-12.
We welcome all boys and girls, and young men and women who are interested in singing beautiful and exciting music of the Christian faith, while growing as musicians and children of God. No church membership is preferred or required, for the camp will include exposure to great music, while learning some of the skills that make us all better musicians: things like reading music (if one doesn’t know how already), ear training and basic voice technique. We will also have composition classes for all participants. Of special interest will be the closing service, featuring music written by and for the campers themselves.
Faculty will include Brian Fairbanks, Associate Musician and chapel organist at St. Mark’s Cathedral, Seattle. Also in residence will be the Rt. Rev. Nedi Rivera, Bishop of Eastern Oregon. Music camp is for grades 3-12, with enrollment limited to 30 students. For more information, contact Patty Olson Lindsey or Lisa Boquist at 541-568-4514.
