The 5th Annual Treble on the Teche started this morning at the Teche Center for the Arts in Breaux Bridge.

The annual arts camp for kids happens every Thanksgiving week.

It culminates in a performance on Wednesday night featuring the students and their musical instructors. The concert is free and open to the public; it starts at 4 p.m. at Teche Center for the Arts, 210 E. Bridge Street.

"Families want the traditional knowledge that our staff musicians and artists have," said Claire Martin of TCA. "They want to pass off that culture and that knowledge to the younger generation so they have an appreciation for the culture."

Renowned musician and teacher Brazos Huval, camp coordinator, has gathered together accomplished musicians and artists in Acadiana to teach area youth at the camp. Artistic and Cultural Instructors include Chad Huval, Zach Huval, Gina Forsyth, Jan Boney, and Susan Leblanc Morrogh, among others.

During each day of camp, there are classes from a variety of disciplines (music, art, dance, and Louisiana French language).

Students can learn percussion, accordion, guitar, and fiddle. Lunch is provided by area restaurants. the camp is aimed at providing a unique opportunity for students, musicians, artists, volunteers, and the community to share the rich and diverse Cajun and Creole culture.
