Sound Of Summer
Music Camps

Presented in partnership with Breach.

Children entering grades 3-12 are invited to work with music professionals to explore sound and create music through three age-appropriate summer camps. The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and Breach have teamed up to put the power of creating music into the hands of each camp participant as composer, musician, and music producer. Campers will have access to SLSO musicians, leading music industry professionals, and more.

No formal music training is needed, but love for music of any genre is a plus. All three Sound Of Summer Music Camps are free of charge, but space is limited.

Camp applications are due by Friday, May 21 at 11:59pm.

Applicants will be notified of their acceptance status by Friday, June 4.
