Kenneth and Wanda Higgins

He had a dream, and he made a commitment to make that dream a reality. His vision was born in 1959 when Hummingbird Music Camp first opened its doors. This humble dreamer was Kenneth Lloyd Higgins, a gentle and powerful educator in the Albuquerque Public School System for 38 years.

Today, you can still feel his presence in the strong and loving warmth radiated by the Higgins family as they keep Hummingbird Music Camp vibrant and alive with all the traditional family values intact.

“Watching children’s musical talents and personalities blossom at Hummingbird was one of Kenneth Lloyd Higgins’ greatest joys, and in fulfillment of his dream the hills surrounding Hummingbird Music Camp are alive with music – and now art and chess.”

Wanda Higgins, Director
