Changes for 2020 Summer Programs

Details as of 4/21/20

Our dedication remains strong as we move forward and continue to invest in the success and safety of our students. Many of our summer programs and events have adapted to online. A few have been cancelled or rescheduled. We hope to see everyone and make music together face-to-face soon!

Check back here for updates to summer programs.


Carolina Summer Music Conservatory
Students interested in private online instruction should contact program director Clifford Leaman who will connect you with the appropriate teachers.

Center for Piano Studies
Private lesson will continue online throughout the summer for new and returning students. Group camps are cancelled for this summer. Sign-up here.

Congaree New Horizons Band
Some summer activities of the Congaree New Horizons Band program will remain active through remote learning and virtual rehearsals and lessons. Additional details will be provided here. You may email program director Amanda Schlegal.

String Project
Camp will look a little different this year, but we are very excited to bring you activities, videos, and challenges for you to accomplish from home. While we can’t be together to make music in person, it is our hope that you learn and grow as a musician just the same. Get the details here.
