The College of Fine Arts fifth annual Children's Kodaly Choir Camp will start Sunday, June 6, and run through Friday, June 11. It's a fun-filled week full of serious education as young singers, ages 10-15, improve their vocal skills and work with leaders and teachers in the WSU Kodaly (pronounced "ko-dye") program.

WSU, in partnership with Kodaly Music Educators of Kansas, began offering the Kodaly camp for kids in summer 2006. The university had become an official site in 2002 for training music teachers in the Kodaly method, created by Hungarian composer Zoltan Kodaly.

Again this year, the Kodaly choir will have rehearsed under the direction of guest conductor Elaine Quilichini, artistic director of the Calgary Girls Choir in Canada.

The camp ends with a concert at 5:30 p.m. Friday, June 11, in Wiedemann Recital Hall. The concert is free and open to the public; it also will be broadcast on WSUir.

The choir program takes day campers and resident campers, who are housed in WSU residence halls through the week and given campus privileges to the Heskett Center, among other activities.

To enroll, contact Kirk Olson, kodaly@wichita.edu, or the College of Fine Arts Institute at (316) 978-3581 or cfai@wichita.edu.
