Public Concerts by UVI Summer Music Camp Students Set on St. Thomas

Weekly concerts by high school students participating in the annual UVI Summer Music Camp on the St. Thomas Campus are scheduled on Wednesdays throughout July at Emancipation Garden in Charlotte Amalie. The concerts began on July 9, with additional concerts and recitals also planned at several other locals during July. Campers are also committed to attend church services each Sunday, with students from one of the ensembles – jazz or concert – performing. The camp, which has 30 students from throughout the territory, is in its ninth year. It is under the direction of retired UVI Professor Austin A. Venzen. See the performance schedule below. 

All performances – except the Bertha C. Boschulte concert – are free and open to the public. For details, contact Prof. Venzen at (340) 998-8867. Tickets for the BCB concert – $20 for adults and $10 for students and seniors – are available from Nora’s Beauty Palace, the UVI Bookstore and summer band students.
