Come alive with the sounds of music during Stephens College’s Summer Musical Showcase camps for children ages 5-14. Pamela Ellsworth-Smith, assistant professor of music at Stephens, directs the camps in Stephens’ Historic Senior Hall, along with School of Performing Arts faculty and students.
Children will engage in musical storytelling, group and solo singing, music skills, movement and performance technique. A fun week of singing, dancing, acting and making some new friends along the way.
