TWIN CITIES YOUTH CAMP FOR FINE & PERFORMING ARTS
JULY 9, 2013
The Twin Cities Youth Camp for Fine & Performing Arts on the Twin Cities University campus is scheduled for two weeks, from Sunday afternoon, July 9, to Saturday night, July 22. Made possible by grants from the Carnegie Foundation and the national Endowment for the Arts, the camp will give approximately forty students a rare opportunity to study and work with outstanding specialists in the fields of art, music, theater, and dance. The camp accommodate up to ten students in each of these fields.

As many as ten music students will be chosen based on their performance at competitive auditions to be held at Hiawatha High School on Saturday, May 13. The judges will include two professors of music from TCU, two music teachers from local high schools, and two music critics (One from the Star Tribune, the other from the Pioneer Press).
