YES is proud to support several music education projects in Yamhill County. Music plays an invaluable role in the development of young minds. Here’s one mother’s words describing her daughter’s experience at Summer Music Camp:
“ …As you know, my daughter’s world has now changed. She has been part of a fun, dynamic, and talented musical performance. At only ten years of age, she knows what it is like to stand as part of the energy of fabulous music. You have changed her life. You have given her hope, a dream, and a reason to practice.”
One week day camp held at McMinnville High School in late August. Students grade 2-12 are welcome. A minimal fee is charged and scholarships are available through YES. For more information, contact Robin Pederson at firstname.lastname@example.org .
