Waynesville, NC -- Voices in the Laurel's SummerVoice Music Camp will expand this year to become the Voices in the Laurel Summer Music Quest with funding from the Young Singers Foundation Grant from Sweet Adelines International.

The camp will take place July 30 - August 3, from 8:45 a.m. -12:45 p.m. at First Baptist Church of Waynesville. Summer Music Quest is open to singers who will be entering 1st - 9th grades in the fall. They will be divided into age groups to participate in a variety of musical experiences. Campers will learn to sing with proper vocal technique and in two and three part harmony. In addition, groups will rotate through classes in mountain dulcimer, world drumming, and class guitar and piano. Some choral numbers will include choreography. The fun-filled week will end with a demonstration concert at noon. Cost is $85 per chorister and includes all music, snacks, professional instructors, a tee shirt...and 5 days of fun music-making!
