Nick's Pizza and Pub

EYSO is holding its first ever Summer Chamber Music Camp. This camp is open to EYSO member and non-member string players. Camp is July 22-26 at Elgin Academy. In order to keep our faculty and teaching assistants going all week, we need to feed them! We are also hosting a celebratory meal at the end for faculty and camp students.

What Are We Looking For?

We are seeking donations to cover the cost of food, or if you're a restaurant, donate meals for the week. We are estimating $1,250 for total cost of food.

What Your Donations Will Cover

Your donations will cover:

  • Meals for faculty lunches for July 22-26
  • We have 11 faculty and 4 teaching assistants (plus 4 guest coaches on one day)
  • Celebratory dinner for faculty and students - In addition to 11 faculty and 4 teaching assistants we have about 40 students

The camp will culminate in concerts performed by camp students on July 26th at 6pm and 7:30pm at the historic Sears Gallery at Elgin Academy. Donors will be invited to intend these concerts!
