Summer Music Camps

The Rowan University Music Faculty is pleased to host the eighth annual sequence of specialized summer music camps in July 2019. Young musicians will have the opportunity to participate in comprehensive Band, Choral, Jazz, String, Composition and Music Industry camps.

Each camp will engage students in full ensemble experiences, chamber music, and master classes, coupled with evening concerts by students and faculty. Students will participate in a variety of social events and experience the excitement of ‘university living’ in air-conditioned accommodations on the beautiful Rowan campus.

We hope you will join us in July 2019 for an enjoyable musical week! Registration will be open in January 2019.
