WMC Campus Brims with Music

by Lilly Goodman-Allright, 2014

On the last morning of the Family Music Camp, our entire WMC campus was bursting with music. As individual bands, whose members ranged in ages from 5 - 70 prepared for a final noon concert, tunes emerged from every available corner. Swinging melodies could be heard from the back deck of Porphyry Place to the classroom of the Hardware store.

You may have been able to treat your ears on any other given moment of the three-day camp. Passers by Porphyry Place in the early morning might have heard sweet harmonies emerging from the Morning Sing-a-Long, or foot stomping fun from the Session I Advanced Jam. Lullabies from the beginning ukulele class may have reached you just in time for an afternoon nap, while laughter from the Drama Improv Session could have woken you up. Finally, maybe you just couldn’t stay away and joined hands with the other 34 members of the camp during the evening Barn Dance, or the Open Jam Session that filled the Great Hall with smiles and song until dusky streamers of last light closed out the day.

If you missed the concerts, don’t worry. With grins that huge on the faces of camp participants, they’ll be sure to be another chance next year. Save the date: July 12-15, 2018!
