Noah Taylor plays Jazz in Europe

Noah has an amazing opportunity to travel to Europe with Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp International Jazz Band in the spring of 2018. 

The cost of the trip is $6,000. plus uniform, passport, spending and so on. The funds we raise here will go directly to the cost of the trip. Payments of 594.00 are due on the 15th of every month from October through May. 

Noah plans to make music his career. He has been selected for three honors bands, including Wayne State Honors band, Detroit Symphony Orchestra Honors Band, and Livingston County High School Honors Band. He participated in solo and ensemble and has attended Blue Lake Fine Arts camp on scholarship twice, being selected to play with the elite Gold Jazz band his second year there. The director he is going with to Europe also plays the trombone and Noah will have such an incredible opportunity to learn and experience Jazz for an extended period of time. Noah has a natural talent and love of all music, but his heart really belongs to Jazz.  This is an opportunity of a lifetime for him and we are determined to get him there. We just need some help. I've already taken on a second job and he will start working as soon as marching season is over.  Rehearsals start in November and we will be traveling to Blue Lake for intensive rehearsals several times before he leaves. 

I cannot begin to tell you how grateful we would be for any amount of assistance you give him. Opportunities like this aren't guaranteed and are rare.  2000 students attended Blue Lake last summer. 200 of them applied to go to Europe. Noah was chosen to be one of 18 students selected to participate this next year in the Jazz band.  Please help him get there.
