School-year program Monday evenings runs through May 2, 2016, 6:30-8:00 PM at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 30650 W. Six Mile Road, Livonia, MI. The summer camp experience carries into our school-year program for young people grades 2-7 and alumni interested in continuing with us for extended learning opportunities. We gather at 6:30 for a light supper followed by choral sessions with Michael Burkhardt (Dr. B to our kids) and integrated learning with handbells, African drumming and Orff. No previous experience necessary, just an interest in music.
