“We are pleased to continue to offer the residents of Haverford Township a convenient and affordable outlet for their children to experience music,” stated Dr. Bill Keilbaugh, Superintendent of The School District of Haverford Township. “The summer music program has consistently been a success and we are proud to contribute to the cultural growth of the children within our township year round.”

Students will also gain experience in choral movement and folk dance, part-singing and varied conducting styles. There will be opportunities for solos and playing rhythm instruments.
All classes will be held at Chestnutwold Elementary School beginning June 25. Students may opt for either of the two 3-week sessions or the full 6-week program.
