Student musicians to attend band camp
LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — More than 130 young musicians from across the Northeast will study and perform at UMass Lowell this week.
The 21st annual concert band camp provides students entering the first year of high school through the first year of college with an opportunity to be part of a weeklong immersion in music ensembles, classes and workshops. Sessions will be held by UMass Lowell music faculty and guest instructors.
The camp was established by Mary Jo Leahey, a 1937 UMass Lowell graduate who was a music teacher and philanthropist.
On Tuesday, the students will play the national anthem before a game played by the Lowell Spinners, the single-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. On Saturday, the musicians will perform a free concert at Durgin Hall at the university.
