The annual Treble on the Teche started today.
The music, arts and culture camp is for kids ages 7 to 13, and is hosted every year by the Teche Center for the Arts.
Also every year, it wraps up with a concert by the students and their instructors at the Center, located at 210 E. Bridge Street in Breaux Bridge. The concert happens on Wednesday at 4 p.m. It’s free and open to the public.
Renowned musician and teacher Brazos Huval, camp coordinator, has gathered together accomplished musicians and artists in Acadiana to teach area youth at this camp.
Each day consists of classes from a variety of disciplines (music, art, dance, and language) taught by experienced local artists. Students can learn percussion, accordion, guitar, and fiddle. Lunch is provided by area restaurants.
Treble on the Teche is a unique opportunity for students, musicians, artists, volunteers, and the community to share our rich and diverse Cajun and Creole culture. The center is designed to be the primary artistic home–the heart and soul of Breaux Bridge and St. Martin Parish. TCA presents music, art, history, literature, language, and culture in the heart of Cajun and Creole country.
This project is supported in part by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council as administered by the Acadiana Center for the Arts, Al Berard Memorial Music Fund, and the Brazos Huval School of Music. Additional sponsors and volunteers are welcome.
