Have you ever wanted to learn to play a violin, viola, or cello? Your prayers can be answered by the Soo Theatre Project’s 2018 Summer Beginning Strings Camp. This camp is for grade 3 and older including elementary, middle school, high school, and adult ages. The Soo Theatre has a thriving and growing strings studio and orchestra program. Now is a great time to try the violin!
During this two-week camp, you will learn how to play a string instrument. You can choose from violin, viola, or cello. One camp is designed for youth (3rd grade and older) and one camp is designed for adults or older students (high school students could choose either session). In one hour a day for two weeks, you will be amazed at how quickly you learn familiar pieces.
Maybe you played the violin when you were in middle school and put it away for years and have been thinking about starting again? This camp could be your way back in! It’s a great refresher course for those who once played but don’t know how to get started again.
Beginning Strings Camp
July 9-13 & July 16-20
3:30-4:30pm Youth (3rd grade & up)
4:30-5:30pm Adult (could include High School)
The Soo Theatre has been fortunate to receive two grants for their strings program. Thanks to grants from the Roberts P and Ella B Hudson Foundation and the Chippewa County Community Foundation Youth Advisory Council, the Soo Theatre will be purchasing a few fractional-size violins or cellos for short-term loan to students who sign up for the beginning strings classes offered through the Theatre. This will reduce the start-up cost and make it easier for those wanting to try a string instrument for the first time.
Needs-Based Scholarships to be awarded!
Thanks to a grant from the CCCF Youth Advisory Council, the Soo Theatre will be able to award a limited number of needs-based scholarships for students who otherwise might not be able to participate in summer camps. Stop in or call the office to fill out a scholarship application if you are interested or think you may qualify. Applications will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and can be awarded to any summer camp.
A great big THANK YOU to the Roberts P and Ella B Hudson Foundation!
