tHE PERFORMANCE

The camp will conclude with a live performance on Saturday evening in The Commons at the Oregon Coast Community College Newport. Family and friends are invited to attend as camp participants show off the skills they have learned. We'll know more about the actual program as we get closer to camp time but for right now it looks like we can look forward to performances by our director Jason's group, Rezonate, and possibly by the Central Coast Chorale's small group Women of Note in addition to the student singing. It should be a fun time with some great music!
