Music Camp Develops Tomorrow's Leaders

About the Project

Remember the joys of summer camp?  Being away from home, fun activities, new friends?  For over thirty years the Tacoma Youth Symphony Association has offered the Evergreen Music Festival for young musicians from all over Washington State.  During the week, students attend orchestra rehearsals, learn music theory and history, work with master teachers on technique, participate in chamber music and choir, and despite the amount of work, have a lot of fun doing it.  TYSA offers 2 sessions.  Session I is a day camp for young woodwind, brass, percussion, and string players, grades 3-8, held at University Place Presbyterian Church.  Session II is a residential camp held at Central Washington University for young musicians grades 9-age 21. 

 

Putting on such a festival is expensive.  There are guest artists who present masterclasses and facilities and performance venues to be paid for.  In addition, not all families can afford tuition for the Evergreen Music Festival.  You can help us offer this great experience to Puget Sound area young musicians by helping us give scholarships and pay for guest artists and facilities.
