Concert series brings Summer Music 2023 to a close

The sound of music has been ringing through the halls of Saugeen District Senior School (SDSS) as the annual Summer Music Camp has taken over almost every space.

The Summer Music Camp began in 1987 and has had a roster of instructors who are prominent in music throughout North America. Summer Music Camp is hosted by the Summer Music Society, a volunteer organization that oversees the Camp and its related activities as well as supporting many music-related groups and events in the community.

From musical theatre to woodwinds and jazz, more than 200 students from beginners to professionals have participated at this year’s camp.
