Randy Lanham, Education Director of the International Bluegrass Music Museum, presents the “Experience Bluegrass Day Camp for Kids 2016” June 20 – 24 at the Owensboro Symphony Orchestra, 211 E 2nd St, Owensboro, KY 42303.
The day camp is open to children ages 8 to 12.
“They will learn all about local legend, Bill Monroe, and how he started Bluegrass music as they tour the International Bluegrass Music Museum and see the different instruments played live,” Lanham said in a release this week. Students will also learn chords on the Mandolin to play and sing “Blue Moon of Kentucky” and other songs. (Instruments will be provided.)
As part of the experience, campers will take what they learn and turn it into a song to record. Each child will get their very own copy of the song on CD.
Kids will also learn an old time square dance and create some musical art.
The camp concludes with a student performance for family and friends on Friday, June 26 at 11 a.m. where campers will show off all their new skills.
