The Leo Kucinski Academy of Music (LKAM) at Morningside College will be presenting a musical performance featuring the students of Mary Treglia House’s Camp Imagination at 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 31, at the Buhler Outdoor Performance Center. The rain location is Eppley Auditorium, 3625 Garretson Ave.
Teachers from the Leo Kucinski Academy of Music, along with guest local music educators, have been singing, dancing and playing with Camp Imagination students two afternoons each week. The performance on Thursday will be a culmination of those experiences and their study of five different countries that span the globe. The performance is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
LKAM opened in the fall of 2004 and focuses on private instruction, monthly workshops and performance classes for student musicians from beginner to high school. The academy also directs three youth orchestras, the Bishop Heelan Catholic Schools String Program and an Early String Program for beginning string players ages 4 and up. Students of the academy come from Sioux City and surrounding communities in Iowa, South Dakota and Nebraska.
