Summer Financial Aid

1. Summer Financial Aid history and winners

Campbell River Friends of Music
Summer Financial Aid Program

For over fifteen years, the Friends of Music have helped students attend a wide variety of summer programs, giving them the opportunity to meet other young musicians, and often to explore outside their area of concentration. For example, a student who practiced piano diligently from September to June, had the chance to play the clarinet in an orchestra, or the saxophone in a jazz combo, for a few weeks in the summer. The letters students sent to thank us for our help all commented on what a great musical experience these summer programs provide.

The Summer Financial Aids are funded by our annual spring concert “NOT Another Piano Recital”.

Applications for Summer Financial Aids are due on March 31. Students should ask their teachers for more information.
