It's a place where curiosity feeds discovery, talent finds development, and passion fuels expression. At the Manship Theatre, class offerings span the disciplines of dance, music, theater, and beyond. Our teaching artists support creativity at every level. Some students are preparing for futures in the performing arts, while others are here simply for an expressive outlet; regardless of level, it's our belief that every individual has a unique spark—something special to express—and it's our goal to help that spark shine brighter through the arts.
Young Composers Workshop
November 24-27, 2013
Manship Theatre is thrilled to partner again with the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra to present the Young Composers Camp! The four-day music education intensive camp is appropriate for children in grades 2-6. They will learn to read, write and conduct their own music during this fun filled camp. Their work will culminate in a concert on the last day of camp in which their compositions will be performed by BRSO musicians.
Each day will feature different musical activities including visits from symphony musicians, sampling the instruments of the orchestra, fun and interactive musical games as well as lessons taught by nationally certified, award winning local music teachers.
This year there will be two levels for the camp: beginner and advanced. Students will be tested on the first day of camp and grouped according to their prior musical knowledge. Students of all musical experiences are welcome!
The camp begins Sunday, November 24th, 2013 from 2:00pm to 6:00pm. Monday, November 25th and Tuesday, November 26th camp hours are 9:00am to 3:30pm. On the last day, Wednesday, November 27th hours are 9:00am to 1:00pm. The final performance will be held at 11:30am on Wednesday, November 27th.
