The 28th year of Warren County Summer Music School is wrapping up this week with a concert and an open house.

The concert is a partnership with the Warren Philharmonic Orchestra. It will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday evening at the fountain at the Pennsylvania and Second avenue point in Warren. In case of rain, the concert will be held at Beaty-Warren Middle School.

There will be an open house at the school from 8:15 a.m. to 12:10 p.m. Friday, June 30.

A total of 131 students, including four adults, spent two weeks “delving into a variety of musical and artistic opportunities through the Warren County Summer Music School,” Director Ruth Nelson said. “The school offers classes at various levels of instruction for woodwind, brass, string, and percussion instruments. In addition, students may choose to study ukulele, guitar, harp, voice, and piano.”

The Summer Music School isn’t limited to music. “In art media, classes are offered in ceramics, watercolors, sculpture, book- and papermaking, and photography,” Nelson said. “”Physically active classes include ballroom dancing, jazz, swing, tap, and yoga.”

This was the first year for offerings in acting, directing, and scene study.

“The community is welcome to stop in any time to visit the classes and join the fun,” Nelson said.
