Providing need-based scholarships to student musicians is an important way that we serve our mission of opportunity, access and diversity. Your support is critical to making that possible.

As you know, this year marks our 9th annual PRIZM Music Camp & International Chamber Music Festival, and we're expanding to TWO weeks! For our first week, we'll be back at Shady Grove Presbyterian Church. For our second week, we're excited to partner with First Baptist Church on Broad Avenue! Throughout both weeks, we will continue to feature an inclusive atmosphere with outstanding international faculty who are dedicated to enhancing the musical development of our youth.
To participate in the Music Camp and Festival, students must be 12 years or older and have a minimum of two years of experience with their instrument. We do offer need-based scholarships to ensure that all students can have this inspiring opportunity. PRIZM Camp is a full day camp, with evening concert commitments.
