Special to The Chronicle

The Summer Conservatory of The Salvation Army Academy of Music & Arts, in partnership with the Winston-Salem Symphony, will present its Graduation Concert on Friday, July 31, at 6:30 p.m. at Galilee Missionary Baptist Church, 4129 Northampton Drive in Winston-Salem.

Special guest Voices of Galilee will perform with the students.

Winston-Salem Area Commander Maj. James Allison says, “The Summer Conservatory Graduation Concert is a testament to the hard work of the students and dedication of the staff. The fruit of their efforts combined with the amazing Voices of Galilee will provide a wonderful evening for all who attend.”

The concert is free and the public is invited. The Summer Conservatory is an intensive seven-week music day camp that takes place daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Students in the program learn to play a brass instrument (trumpet, horn, baritone or tuba) and get to learn a second instrument of their choice depending on availability (guitar, piano or drumline).

Violin as a second instrument is offered through a partnership with the Winston-Salem Symphony.

Students learn basic music theory, sing in a choir and take part in a Bible class.

The summer conservatory is open to children in grades 4-12 who can commit to attend all seven weeks of the program.

New students need no prior brass or musical experience.

Students have plenty of time for recreation daily.

Field trips are taken once a week as part of the curriculum.

These include visits to the mall, bowling, movies and weekly trips to the YWCA Gateway pool.

In addition, the most advanced students will have the opportunity to take part in several ministry trips to local assisted living residences and two Sunday ministry trips to area Salvation Army corps.
