Fox Valley Music Camp 
2022:  A Space Odyssey

June 13-17, 2022
9 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (Lunch included)

For Grades 3 - 12

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. (Psalm 19:1)

Travel with the Fox Valley Music Camp to uncharted galaxies as we explore the universal language of music and rhythm! This summer’s camp will focus on making music, creating cool sound effects, and learning about the works of composers who have sought to capture the mysteries of space in musical form, from classical composers to electronic experimenters…and beyond!

Grades 6-12

Camp Director Michael Folker will integrate his interest in all things NASA with music making. A long-time collector of space memorabilia, Prof. Folker will share items from his collection that have flown on NASA rockets – even to the moon and back! Students will have the opportunity to create their own space tracks using cool FX and images in the MIDI-lab. In addition, students will perform their instruments in a special “out-of-this-world” ensemble as well as learn how to create exciting sound effects on percussion instruments. A performance on Friday will showcase the students’ creativity.

Grades 3-5

Campers will "blast off" by exploring Gustav Holst's musical composition "The Planets" as they learn about our solar system. They will compose their own pieces, too! They will have fun learning how to play the steel pan, the ukulele, and the recorder in group ensembles. They will also perform for family and friends at a concert on Friday.

This will be a week like none other, combining musical pursuit with space exploration and individual creativity, within a Christian context. All instrumental and voice students are welcome, from beginners to advanced.
