Jayne Glocke/ Coordinator, PSU summer music camp
<<“The camp has 189 students this summer and it’s been in existence for probably
15 or 16 years and the population usually comes from the north east and New England
state. This year we have a young lady from Saudi Arabia, another from California and
I believe Hawaii.”>>
Pat Feher/ High school junior, Doylestown, PA
<<“Each year it is a little different and there is so much to experience and you can
never do enough.”>>
Louise Page/ High school senior, State College, PA
<<“Once I got here I realized that I was learning a lot about music and it was a good
way to keep up with my music over the summer and learn a lot about what it would be like
to be in a music program at the university.”>>
Voice of Jayne Glocke/ Coordinator, PSU summer music camp
<<“The program that we offer is somewhat unique in that it is a comprehensive music
program. Its not just a band camp, its not just a choir camp we encourage students to
come and either perform in the piano area, jazz band, concert band, orchestra or choir
and they can double up on those things.”>> [Music playing…]
Voice of Jayne Glocke/ Coordinator, PSU summer music camp

<<”…Lots of things that I think are intriguing to students that are interested in music.”>>
Voice of Louise Page/ High school senior, State College, PA
<< “I love music because it is a way to express yourself either individually or collectively…
it really relates to all aspects of life, when you really push yourself in music you
learn to push yourself doing other things.”>>
[Sounds of music playing…]
Voice of Louise Page << “A 2 hour band rehearsal at 8 in the
morning doesn’t sound like too much fun but when you have a really exuberant and dedicated
professor… it makes it a lot more enjoyable.”>>
Jayne Glocke <<“They have performances on Saturday. Every
area has a large performance so there is a piano recital, choir performance, jazz band
concert orchestra concert and we end with the concert band.”>>
[Music from performance playing]
Voice of Jayne Glocke <<“I think music is very important to human
beings.”>>

Voice of Jayne Glocke <<“Music making, music itself is a very
powerful thing for all people whether you are a classic musician or you listen to the
radio… it helps us be better people, we need the arts, we need music.”>>
