Help send Brennan to Interlochen
$6,103 of $6,500 goal
To let you know a little bit about myself, I started taking violin lessons a little over 7 years ago and have become completely hooked. Pretty much everything I spend my time on is creative. When I'm not practicing or performing, I'm composing, writing short stories or working on a novel. I play with the Arkansas Symphony Youth Orchestra, and at school I am a member of the Sheridan High School Concert Choir. Our school does not have an orchestra program, so being able to spend a summer immersed in orchestra every day would be incredible.
The exciting thing to me about Interlochen is that in addition to the amazing instruction and performance opportunities with the orchestra program, I may also get to spend time working on composition. This is completely my dream summer!
However, we have a huge hurdle to get me there. Michigan is a long way from Arkansas, and while the camp has graciously provided financial aid, I will still need about $6,500 to get me there. That amount includes the remaining tuition, the cost of uniforms, and travel expenses to get me to and from the camp. My family is very supportive, but we do not have a lot of financial resources and could really use your help. Any amount you could give would be really appreciated!
Thank you for visiting my page! I'll be posting updates as we get closer to the summer.
Later this summer, I am headed to the Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival in Burlington, Vermont. Very excited about this opportunity.
Brennan has reported in that he's having a great time and playing up a storm. He's met kids from as far afield as Turkmenistan and Qatar. What an experience!
Dropped Brennan off at Interlochen this afternoon. Last I saw him he was headed to a practice hut. Will update you all as he sends us highlights.
One month from today, we will be on the road to Interlochen. There is still time to help Brennan get to his goal!
I am really grateful for my Prison Fellowship friends and family who have reached out and supported Brennan. You are a blessing to me and to our whole family!!
We are so excited for Brennan and are very thankful for all of you who are so generously helping to get him to Interlochen this summer!
