Music Programs
Music ProgramsToday both orchestras and choirs are disappearing from the public schools, and the prospect of music in children's lives and education has become dismal. With state government & school districts cutting funding for the arts, and private lessons becoming more costly, the need for supplemental music became greater.

Sierra Mountain Music Camp began as an effort to boost school music programs and provide a unique experience in a beautiful environment, with dedicated directors and staff. Our founders, Gus and Peggy Noland, made a spiritual commitment to organize a summertime choral camp and from the beginning, Gus' dream has been to inspire young men, as well as young women to sing. As the camp has grown, programs such as the orchestras and the symphony have been added to support the increased demand from campers, parents, and the community.
