Music By The Lake (MBTL) is an eight day residential instrumental and vocal music camp for Toronto District School Board students in grades 6 – 8. It will take place Saturday, June 3 through to Saturday, June 10, 2017.
Music By The Lake is a life changing experience for many young musicians. Their participation in MBTL continues to develop their appreciation of music, and their musicianship (from a week of playing and singing 4 hours a day, seeing professional performances every night, and performing for the entire camp in a small ensemble concert). It also develops their ability to think critically and to work as part of a team.
The MBTL application is now happening online. Attached is all necessary information on how to apply. Links to information and the application are available on the website: https://sites.google.com/a/tdsb.on.ca/music-by-the-lake/.
Students who are eligible to attend MBTL include:
- Instrumental students (band, strings, guitar and steel pan) in grades 6, 7, or 8 who are currently enrolled in their school instrumental program and have been for a minimum of one year,
- Vocal students in grades 6, 7, or 8 who are currently a member of their school choir. In the absence of a school choir, interested students are welcome.
Scholarships are available – contact Ms. Cocco if you would like to request a scholarship application form.
Students are expected to remain in this program for the full duration, so please make sure there are no school conflicts.
