CSO Music Camp at Carrollton Center for the Arts


Come join us for a fun and exciting week of

musical exploration. This camp is all about fun,

making new friends, and exploring the world

of music! Students in grades 1-12 are invited

to experience a week of learning, connecting,

and performing with members of the Carroll

Symphony Orchestra. Participants will study a

major instrument, learn music history and theory,

and experience the thrill of making music in a

youth orchestra. Students are asked to bring

their instruments. Students interested in string

instruments can bring their own; however, the

center will have violins for students that do not

own an instrument. Optional private lessons will

be available with the acclaimed musicians of the

CSO during the afternoons.

Campers will have the opportunity to perform

with the Carroll Community Wind Ensemble on Tuesday,

June 26 at 7:00pm, and they can hear the new

Carrollton Jazz Orchestra on Friday, June

29 at 6:30 pm. These concerts are free and open to

the public. For more information call 770-838-1083
