Summer youth music program returns
Submitted By Jenny Lin Foundation
The Jenny Lin Foundation Summer Youth Music Program, now in its 24th season, is open for registration. All music students at the high school level and advanced musicians at the middle school level are invited to attend this exceptional program.
During June and July students will not only meet other young musicians from around the Bay Area, but cultivate leadership skills as well. Last summer, about 300 students from 11 cities enrolled in the program.
The three performing groups will consist of: Symphonic Orchestra (directed by Cary Nasatir), Symphonic Band (Gregory Conway), and Chorus (Diana Ryan). Rehearsals are at Canyon Middle School in Castro Valley, Mondays and Wednesdays, 6:45 p.m. to 9 p.m., from June 18 to July 27. The program concludes with a free concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 27 at the Reed L. Buffington Center for Visual and Performing Arts at Chabot College, Hayward.
The Jenny Lin Foundation is a non-profit organization in Castro Valley established in 1994 following the murder of 14-year-old Jenny Lin. The case remains unsolved. With the help of volunteers and contributions, the foundation promotes child safety and music education for youth, sponsoring many events around the East Bay.
Participants may be eligible for scholarships from the Youth Orchestra of the Southern Alameda County and Mission Peak Wind Symphony. To register, please visit www.jennylinfoundation.org, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
