Sometimes there’s just not enough room, so we’re using a single post to congregate info about the Pasadena Conservatory of Music summer programs for kids, this week’s Art Center student exhibit, and the YWCA’s “girl power” camp.

*The Pasadena Conservatory of Music is offering three programs (re: workshops) this summer:

  • Young Musicians Program: 8 weeks for ages 4 months to 12 years. Classes are age specific and have themed classes such as “Recorder Karate,” “Music Meets Drama,” and “Folk Dance.”

The YM classes support our belief that every child is born with music aptitude and that early musical experiences, when presented in fun and musically sound ways, can have a profound effect upon each child’s future musical endeavors.

  • Contemporary Percussion Ensemble with T.J. Troy: 6 sessions for ages 9 and up (adults included) and open to all regardless of previous percussion experience. Workshop culminates in a performance.
  • Jazz Workshop: 2-week intensive course for 7th graders and up, which provides foundations of jazz improv, theory, and history. For beginning, intermediate, and advanced students.

Art Center College of Design students have been exploring the “intersection of identity and social connection.”

The result: Community, an art exhibit debuting more than 25 new works, including illustrations, paintings, digital photography, silkscreen, and mixed media.

The show opens at Jones Coffee Roasters on Tuesday, June 11th and runs through August 11th. The opening reception will be 5-8 p.m. All are welcome to this free event (though good luck resisting a delicious double, 2-shot latte; yeah, that’s our favorite).

Community, Art Center student exhibit at Jones Coffee, 693 S. Raymond Ave., Pasadena 91105.
