Music Camp is a great learning opportunity for middle and high school students. The Mars Hill University Summer Music Camp affords students the opportunity to learn under music faculty from Mars Hill University, regional public schools, and from across the southeast.

The beautifully landscaped campus of Mars Hill University is the perfect setting for a week of music study, practice, rehearsal, and performance. Many of the mountain region’s top conductors, music educators, and performers will serve on the faculty.  Our administrative staff and camp counselors will supervise a number of enjoyable co-curricular opportunities. Family members and friends of the student musicians are welcome to attend a Friday afternoon concert in Moore Auditorium
