Testimonials

Family feel of camp

“We were delighted that he was selected to perform in the honor recital and was a featured soloist in the Pops concert. Mr. Schmearer is a wonderful conductor and a great inspiration to my son. I love the family feel of this camp and the support all the kids give to one another.”
