Summer Strings Camp registration extended to Friday

The registration deadline for Salisbury Symphony’s Summer Strings Camp has been extended to Friday.
The annual camp is set for June 16-20 at St. John’s Lutheran Church and offers beginning, intermediate and advanced classes in violin, viola, cello and bass for children 8 years and older. Classes will run from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., and a concert will be held on the last day of camp.
The camp fee is $100; scholarships are available. The Summer Strings Camp is made possible through a grant from Akzo Nobel and donations from symphony supporters.
To register, contact Education Director Susan Trivette at 704-637-4730 or email at strivett@catawba.edu by Friday.
The symphony is also offering other music camps this summer for musicians and would-be musicians of all ages.
Offered for the first time are a Fiddle Camp and a Violin Boot Camp, taught by Marguerite Keller, music director of the Rowan Youth Orchestra. Each of the camps is 6-8 sessions in length, customized to the schedules of those who register.
Beginners in the Fiddle Camp will learn some well-known fiddle tunes, while more advanced players will explore various fiddle techniques and learn basics for playing back-up fiddle.
Violin Boot Camp is for players with at least 2 years of training. Topics include tone production, intonation, vibrato, and learning to read from a chord chart (praise and worship, rock and bluegrass groups).
For information and to register, contact Trivette.
