Livingstone to have summer music camp June 10-14
SALISBURY — Livingstone College will host a summer music camp June 10-14 for middle and high school students ages 11-18 who play piano or a band instrument.
The camp will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day at Varick Auditorium. All campers will participate in chorus and perform in a final concert June 14.
Instrumentalists will participate in daily ensemble and sectional rehearsals. Pianists will have the opportunity to attend and perform in master classes, theory classes and daily presentations, said DaVaughn L. Miller, chairman of the music and theater arts department.
“This is an opportunity for student musicians to become more proficient on their instrument and to hone their skills. It’s an affordable master class close to home,” Miller said.
All classes will be taught by Lawrence Quinnett and Anthony Jones, both Livingstone College music professors.
Quinnett teaches piano and music theory and is an active concert pianist. He holds a doctorate in music from Florida State University. He has given concerts, conducted master classes and adjudicated competitions in the Caribbean, United Kingdom and the U.S.
Jones is the Livingstone College band director and teaches instrumental and marching band techniques and music seminar. He holds a master’s degree in music education from Winthrop University and is pursuing his doctorate in music education from Gardner-Webb University.
A limited number of campers will be accepted to ensure the best balance of ensemble experience and individual attention.
A fee of $20 will be due on the first day of camp.
