The SU Brass ensemble will once again delight its concert goers with its annual spring pops concert. This year the musical selections include some of the ensemble’s favorites: Fanfare for Full Fathom five (based upon Shakespeare’s The Tempest), Jesus Christ Superstar, Alexanders Ragtime Band, Scene One from Swan Lake (Tchaikovsky), Pirates of the Caribbean, Blades of Toledo (trombone favorite), and Sparks (Xylophone solo), amongst others. This spring the ensemble has been invited to be a “showcase” band at the Great American Brass Band Festival in Kentucky, where they will perform many of these pieces.
Vanderkamp works with its partners the Presbyterian and Lutheran Churches in Central New York to offer an outstanding retreat and camping experience. Vanderkamp is located near Cleveland, off the north shore of Oneida Lake. During the summer months, Vanderkamp offers a Christian Summer Camping experience that parents and children alike agree is a one of a kind experience – noted for its love and inclusive messages. New this summer there is an all beliefs camp week that will celebrate the diversity in all of us.
Vanderkamp also offers facilities and support for retreats, meetings, and gatherings. Full meal services are offered to groups, but kitchens are located in each of our retreat lodges for those wanting to cook their own meals. Programs are offered for anyone from a solo retreater to a group of 150! Vanderkamp has a pristine private 45 acre lake that all can enjoy. Everyone is welcome, to roam the network of trails for hiking, or biking – or head down to the lake for canoeing, kayaking, or rowboating during your stay or come just for the day.
Proceeds from the concert’s free will offering will make it possible for all kampers who want to attend kamp to do so. Funds will also support the many community based and year round programs at Vanderkamp.
