The HPYO is proud to announce the launch of its second annual SUMMER CAMPS!!!

You’ve never studied music? NO PROBLEM!
You don’t have an instrument? NO PROBLEM!*

Situated in downtown Hamilton, the camps will offer a great musical day-camp experience to youth ages 8- 14 regardless of musical literacy or playing level. Activities will include collective and individual instrumental coaching*, choral/singing ensembles, basic to advanced theory lessons and rhythm/percussion training.
