IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE 2024 LYRE CONFERENCE

Summer Music Camp for Youth
Wednesday, August 14, through Saturday, August 17, 2024

Scheduled simultaneously with the adult lyre conference opening on Tuesday evening, the 13th–click here for more information–the fulltime youth program includes afternoon recreational activities, such as swimming and games, in addition to exploring local places of interest. Various lunch and supper packages are offered. Full-time participants would need to be accompanied to the conference by an adult or other chaperone for purposes of lodging and meals, although the program itself will be fully staffed.

Children (ages 9-16) can register for the Youth Program as either full-time or half-time participants with optional meal packages. The half-time program will target local children and will include all morning music work and snacks, with an option to join the afternoon activities and meals for an extra fee.

Our youth program will be led by Veronika Roemer, who is a professional violist and pianist with many years of experience making music with children, using a large variety of instruments, including the lyre. Her work always includes singing, improvising, and learning composed music by ear and from sheet music. Her teaching style was inspired by Pär Ahlbom and Reinhild Brass, musicians and teachers who have developed inspiring new ways to engage children in musical activities that include lots of movement and improvisation.

We hope that many children from near and far will take advantage of this opportunity to explore both instrumental and choral music with other children in the Youth Program of the 2024 Summer Lyre Conference at the beautiful Camphill Village in Copake, New York!
