Music for All Summer Symposium

Music for All has been providing positively life-changing experiences at its summer camp for over 40 years. It’s America’s Camp: the national summer learning experience for band and orchestra students, and teachers. Music for All brings together the best faculty, exciting concerts and events, and students from band and orchestra programs from coast-to-coast who share a love of music-making, performance, and student leadership. The Music for All Summer Symposium is for high school band and orchestra students, with outstanding learning experiences for students of all levels of experience, in a wide range of areas of interest.
