The Edmonds Summer Music School offers an outstanding musical experience for students in grades 5-12. During this summer’s three-week camp, 140 students from throughout the Edmonds School District are participating, along with 25 high school-age music mentors. The camp is staffed by professional music educators from throughout the region, and gives students the opportunity to grow musically while participating in a number of great ensembles and electives.
All students participate in the camp choir and can specialize in either concert band or orchestra. Additionally, they have the opportunity to learn new skills in a variety of interest-based electives including: jazz bands, jazz choir, harp, song writing, steel drums, musical theater, blues and new instrument labs.
The group recently marched in the Edmonds Fourth of July Parade and will give free, public performances on:
Thursday, July 15 at 7 p.m. in the gym of Mountlake Terrace High School, and Friday, July 16 at 11 a.m. in Edmonds City Park (3rd and Pine).
