VERMILLION, S.D. — The University of South Dakota Department of Music recently hosted 205 middle and high school students at the 65th annual USD Summer Music Camp.

In addition to daily rehearsals in large ensembles like band, choir, and orchestra, students attending the camp had the opportunity to participate in more than 20 additional ensembles and music classes, five different concerts, and the camp generated more than 100 hours of individual private lessons. The staff of nearly 60 worked with the students during the week to enhance their music skills and foster their passion for the art.
