Summer Music Camp: June 17-22, 2018


Ohio Northern University’s Summer Music Camp is designed for students in grades 7-12 and provides many performing and educational opportunities. Campers register as vocal, band or string major, with auditions held the first day of camp to determine chair and voice placement.

Campers will have the opportunity to perform in symphonic band, symphonic choir, string orchestra, instrumental ensembles, show choir and/or jazz band, and will be exposed to music theory, music technology, conducting, dance, piano classes and jazz improvisation. Symphonic choir, symphonic band and string orchestra rehearse throughout the week and perform on the Friday night concert. The small ensembles will perform on Thursday night.

For any questions contact Sarah Waters at or 419-772-2704.
