Rocky Ridge Music Center

Zeb the Duck here and I have to tell you about my neighbor, Greer Ramsey-White.    Greer is a very accomplished violin player.  She went to Rocky Ridge Music Center near Estes Park, Colorado.

A great music camp

This camp is on 17 wooded acres in the Rocky Mountains.  The camp sits at the foot of 14,259 foot Longs Peak.  Rocky Ridge Music Center opened as a music camp in 1942.  This place is beautiful.

The last day of camp featured a concert for parents and friends.  Fantastic!  Greer is playing her violin with a group here.

Greer stayed at Rocky Ridge Music Center for two weeks.  She liked this camp.  I liked the concert and the camp was so pretty.

Greer and all the campers stayed in cabins like this one.

Doesn’t this look like fun?

My neighbor, Greer, attends Denver School of the Arts in Denver, Colorado.

Denver School of the Arts is a comprehensive secondary arts magnet school (grades 6-12) in the Denver Public School District.   Admittance to this school is by audition only; so all students are very talented.  Of course, I think Greer is one of the most talented.  If you follow music you may know of Greer Ramsey-White.  If you don’t know of her, you will in the future.  Greer is an excellent violin player.

When the concert was over, we returned to Denver.  All that music and camp makes humans and ducks hungry.  The Old Spaghetti Factory is a favorite restaurant.

You can eat at regular tables or you may decide to eat in this car.

I hope you eat at the Old Spaghetti Factory soon.  I really hope you visit Rocky Ridge Music Center near Estes Park.  For more information about the camp, visit www.rockyridge.org   For more information about Denver School of the Arts, visit http://dsa.dpsk12.org

Greer is an accomplished violin player, but she is also a normal, happy teenage girl.  And she is one of my favorite neighbors!
