Peabody is featured in The Beacon this month. The Conservatory hosts a summer camp for adults who love playing the piano each summer. The camp is a week-long event where campers receive private coachings, practice time, opportunities to attend lectures and master classes, and can even perform for each other. The camp has been a haven for piano lovers for 25 years and has created lifelong relationships among the people who come.
