Coda Academy announces summer schedule

FAYETTEVILLE — 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.

This summer’s faculty will include graduates from Peabody, Cleveland Institute of Music, Julliard and East Tennessee State University. The program was founded by Charles and Esther Morey in 2007 to promote artistic excellence in students in Appalachia and beyond.

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. 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 short and long term results of these summer camps are incredible,” Esther Morey said in a press release.

“Students gain confidence and a passion for their music which often leads to year-round involvement through private instruction, school bands, or wonderful organizations like the New River Youth Symphony and Chorus.”

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.

A deposit to hold the earliest bird prices can be made by Feb. 15 at Coda’s website. 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 codamountain@gmail.com for more information about creating a student scholarship. She also may be contacted at 304-663-6688.
