Brandon Sun, The (Newspaper) - June 12, 1974, Brandon, Manitoba keystone notebook Big summer planned BIlV I at the Music Camp ky OAIIH ttoumt Anyone who spends a quiet Sunday wondering what to do this year has obviously missed one of the better weekend attractions available in the province the International Music Camp at the worlds only International Peace Garden On a brief visit to the Garden on Sunday we found a summer menu that offers something for almost any taste and most of the attractions are free for the takingin without charge The excitement actually started at the Music Camp on Sunday when scores of young bands men from across the US and Canada flocked to the first week of band camp joined there by musicians from England Norway Sweden Den mark Belgium Luxembourg West Germany and Japan as the international features of the Music Camp grow and grow year by year These students will be on the stage on Sunday coming with one of the bestknown names in band music on the podium for the Mountie and Ranger bands Dr Paul Yoder a North Dakota native who has composed more than 1500 pieces of music for bands is a busy chap and hisname is probably known by almost any musician who has ever been around a school or community band Pastpresident of the American Bandmasters Association and currently vicepresident of the World Band Congress Dr Yoder will help kick off the summer in the Garden program on Sun day Also on the bandstand Sunday will be James Ployhar of Fargo a leading composer of band music for high school and junior high bands The concert will feature one of Mr Ployhars recent marches a tune commissioned by the North Dakota Band Directors Association as a possible official march for the state Mr Ployhar will conduct the cadet band on Sunday while the honor band will be under the direction of Dr Merten Utgaard director and founder of the International Music Camp Away back in 1956 when the first session of the International Music Camp was held it is unlikely that Dr Utgaards fondest dreams could foresee the day when more than 400 students from 11 nations would combine for the opening week of a big summer of music dance and the arts in the park surroundings straddling the Canada United States boundary Echoes of European visits Many of the students from abroad are here as a direct result of the excitement generated across Europe by the every other year visit of a select band and choir from the Music Camp This year as since about 1962 some 140 kids from across the US and Canada will make a threeweek visit to European centres stretching from London through Holland Belgium Ger many Denmark Sweden and winding up in Olso a grassroots youth exchange that has paid dividends for the whole program Because of the tours young bandsmen from many nations now know about the International Music Camp and moreand morje jeach year are turning a part of4he program Henk van Lijnschooten a leading composer conductor and adjudicator in Holland will again be part of the International Music Camp crew this summer and will be guest conductor on the June 30 Sunday concert at the Formal Garden area Mrvan Lijnschooten has had an intimate as sociation with theMusic since about he was an adjudicator at the World Music Festival at Kerkrade Holland where the Music Camp band came away with a gold medal The band and choir under the direction of Dr Utgaard and Edward Anderson of Colorado State University respectively will head for Europe in early August after departure concerts at Bottineau Brandon and Devils Lake Five young Manitobans plus two from Saskatchewan and a girl from Thunder Bay will make up the Canadian contingent in the band Manitobans are Holly Johnston of Hamiota Ingrid Stitt of Dauphin and a trio of Win nipeggers
