On August 24th, 18 senior students in Sistema Toronto will be attending the Interprovincial Music Camp (IMC) at Camp Manitou on Manitouwabing Lake for one week!
This program offers:
A once in a lifetime opportunity to experience overnight summer camp for at-risk kids
Opportunities to learn leadership skills and independence
Time exploring nature, away from the city
The opportunity to meet new friends
The chance to hone their music skills with lessons from expert musicians and orchestra rehearsals
Preparation for their high school auditions later in the year
The 18 students selected for IMC this summer are all incredibly deserving and highly accomplished young people, all of whom would never otherwise have the opportunity to attend a camp of this caliber. Attending a high-level music camp can be a transformational experience for young musicians, opening hearts and minds to inspiration and establishing new professional connections for fledgling careers. These students have worked hard at their musicianship skills year after year at Sistema, and are admired leaders among their Sistema peers. We are thrilled to be able to provide this opportunity to advance these students’ skills and give them a real camp adventure for the first time, and we’re extremely grateful to everyone who is able to contribute to help fund this important artistic experience.
We're currently fundraising to help us cover some of the costs of sending these kids to camp. If you're interested in donating, you can learn more at: http://bit.ly/sistemacamp.
