CTF funds MMMI summer camp scholarships
Naylor Family Fund continues support of College music camp
The Community Trust Foundation is once again ensuring young musicians have access to Garrett College's Mountain Maryland Music Institute summer programming.
CTF, on behalf of the Naylor Family Fund, has awarded the Garrett College Foundation $7,711 to fund scholarships for the MMMI camps, which will run July 12-16. The funding level ensures that all campers accepted will attend tuition-free.
"We appreciate the ongoing support that both CTF and the Naylor Family Fund have provided for MMMI," said Dr. Richard Midcap, Garrett College's president. "Their continued support removes the financial barriers for young aspiring musicians who might not otherwise be able to participate in this enrichment program."
The MMMI initiative includes three separate camps that run concurrently – elementary choir for students ages 9-12; instrumental band for students ages 13-17, and piano for students ages 8-17. Dr. Sean Beachy, who teaches a wide range of music courses at Garrett College, is the camp director.
"I'm so thrilled to be able to offer music camps again at Garrett College, especially since we had to cancel last year due to the pandemic," said Dr. Beachy. "For this year, I'm excited that we can also offer free tuition for all students who apply, something that has been made possible through the generosity of the Community Trust Foundation and Naylor Family Fund."
Students wishing to register for one of the three camps may do so by emailing their interest to email@example.com or by calling 301.387.3069.
CTF – the community foundation serving Allegany, Garrett and Mineral counties – focuses in the areas of arts and historical preservation, health and wellness, vibrant communities and thriving environment, and education and youth leadership.
