Swift Current Music Camp concert at Lyric Theatre, July 27, 2017

Written by 

Young musicians had an opportunity to perform on stage in front of an audience at the Lyric Theatre, July 27.  The Blenders summer concert concluded the weeklong Swift Current Music Camp for musicians between the ages of 13 to 18.  The students were able to learn from experienced musicians during the week with sessions on listening, techniques, performing, theory, group dynamics and stage presence that will help them to get ready to play in a contemporary band. The camp activities took place at Maverick School, the Lyric Theatre and outdoors at Gowan's Grove on a farm near the city. Canadian singer-songwriter Dagan Harding spent the final afternoon of the camp with the students and he also performed that evening at the concert. The ambient alternative rock band Bears in Hazenmore was the opening act at the music camp's summer concert, July 27. Band members were instructors at the Swift Current Music Camp. Four music camp bands performed at the concert.
