Guest artists may perform in our "after lunch" concerts, and/or in our two end-of-session concerts. The list of guest artists keeps growing, and we take the opportunity to invite "surprise" artists to make unannounced appearances in addition to scheduled musicians. Campers get the opportunity to see, hear and often play with nationally and internationally renowned artists. This exposure to professional musicians inspires our young campers to stretch themselves.
