Coda 2013 this summer launches its sixth summer music festival in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. The Coda Academy offers two music camps and numerous concerts open to the public. Coda Academy is an exciting, two-week musical immersion in a challenging but nurturing environment. It serves students, ages 12 to 23, in piano, strings, brass and bluegrass instruments, pictured. Students are accepted at a variety of levels. A woodwind track will open pending sufficient interest in that track. Please contact the Academy at codamountain.com if you would like to study flute, oboe, saxophone, clarinet, or bassoon. Coda Kidz, a day camp for six days, serves students, ages 5 to 12, and requires no previous musical experience. However, students who already play violin, viola or cello enjoy the challenge and fun of bluegrass jamming and/or simple chamber music. The two-week residential camp will be housed at the New River Gateway on the Gorge in Fayetteville, and costs range from $995 to $1,450. Coda Kidz at Fayetteville Christ Fellowship will run from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday, June 18 through Saturday, June 22, with a 3 p.m. concert on Sunday, June 23 at 3 p.m. Cost ranges from $125 to $155. Visit codamountain.com to find fabulous videos, fund raising ideas and tuition schedules. Limited scholarships are available. Coda is actively looking for donors to scholarship students to these potentially life changing summer opportunities. Please contact Esther Morey at email@example.com for more information about creating a student scholarship. She also may be contacted at 304-663-6688.
