Music By The Lake Camp – for grades 6, 7, 8

Music By The Lake (MBTL) is an eight day residential instrumental and vocal music camp for Toronto District School Board students in grades 6 – 8. It will take place Saturday, June 3 through to Saturday, June 10, 2017.

Music By The Lake is a life changing experience for many young musicians.  Their participation in MBTL continues to develop their appreciation of music, and their musicianship (from a week of playing and singing 4 hours a day, seeing professional performances every night, and performing for the entire camp in a small ensemble concert).  It also develops their ability to think critically and to work as part of a team.

The MBTL application is now happening online.  Links to information and the application are available on the website: https://sites.google.com/a/tdsb.on.ca/music-by-the-lake/.

You will not be receiving a hard copy of any forms.

Students who are eligible to attend MBTL include:

Instrumental students (band, strings, guitar and steel pan) in grades 6, 7, or 8 who are currently enrolled in their school instrumental program and have been for a minimum of one year.

OR

Vocal students in grades 6, 7, or 8 who are currently a member of their school choir. In the absence of a school choir, interested students are welcome.

Students are expected to remain in this program for the full duration, so please make sure there are no school conflicts.
