The University of Evansville Department of Music has announced the dates for the 4th annual Wesley Shepard Summer Music Camp. The camp will be held on the UE campus from June 22-28 and will include both band and orchestra divisions.

Aside from ensemble rehearsals, students will have the opportunity to study music theory in a small class setting. The students will also choose an elective from a list of options that include jazz band, chamber music, and conducting.

Day camp tuition ($195) includes lunch each day in the Ridgway Student Center, as well as recreation time using the UE recreation and athletic facilities. Overnight camp tuition ($450) will also include six nights stay in the dormitories and three meals per day, plus additional evening activities and guest performances.
