Curry Summer Music Camp at NAU was established in 1950 by Dr. Jack Swartz to offer junior high and high school students the opportunity for musical immersion and social interaction with one another. Surrounded by the San Francisco Peaks on the Northern Arizona University campus in Flagstaff, young musicians have the opportunity to work with instructors from the NAU School of Music as well as renowned musicians from across the country. Primary ensembles are led by distinguished clinicians and rehearse two hours each day. In addition to primary ensembles, campers attend master classes specific to their instrument or voice and elective classes intended to expand their knowledge and appreciation of many different facets of music. Campers also attend various evening concerts and recitals and have time to relax and enjoy fun activities during camp such as talent shows, dances, movie nights, a competitive scavenger hunt and more.
