Colorado State University-Pueblo Music Department hosts music, adventure camp

PUEBLO – The Music Department at Colorado State University-Pueblo will host its annual Southern Colorado Music Adventure Camp for kids July 10-15 in Hoag Recital Hall. The camp allows students ages 6-18 to work with prominent music faculty to advance their musical careers as well as enjoy the great Colorado outdoors. 

The camp includes two options for study, the Young Artist and Prelude programs. The Young Artist Program is open to students interested in focusing on solo repertoire and chamber music. In order to attend the Young Artist Program, students must submit an application signed by parents or guardians as well as a YouTube audition that includes the musician’s name, age, city, two contrasting pieces that best demonstrate playing ability and two scales that best demonstrate fundamentals of technique. 

The Prelude Program allows students to play in orchestral/piano ensembles and work in group class settings. The Prelude Program is open to piano and string musicians ages 6-18 yrs. No audition is required. 

Both groups of students will have the chance to attend guest lecturers, masterclasses, and professionally-guided outdoor adventures through the University’s Outdoor Pursuits program. Last year’s camp included a bicycle trip, ropes course, as well as outings to Lake Pueblo.

Parents will appreciate the convenient location and affordable tuition of $275 for either program. Payments for the six-day camps must be paid in full by July 1. Scholarships may be available to assist with the cost. For more info, contact: Violin: Timothy Hsu at Cello: Norah Clydesdale at, Piano: Dr. Zahari Metchkov at or call the CSU-Pueblo Music Department at 719.549.2552 Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
