Summer Sounds Choral Festival is a half-day choral experience (8:45 a.m. to noon) in which campers learn choral repertoire and performance techniques, develop their musical skills through movement and music games, and attend special classes with instruments. Experienced music teachers teach all classes, and ONU music majors serve as counselors. The week culminates with a concert highlighting the skills the children have learned throughout the week.
