A talented group of musicians and teachers will share their expertise with children ages 7 to 15 this summer.

Several other teachers and volunteers will offer their time as mentors during the one-week experience.

The program for first- through fourth-graders will focus on choir, Orff instruments and art. High-school students are welcome to aid the classes.
