A huge thank you is not nearly enough to express the gratitude we have to all of you for making this summer’s camp experience so very special for our sons…. You provide an environment for children to learn, explore, express, take risks and mature musically without fear. It is their safe haven each summer to retreat to with other like-minded, passionate musicians in an environment that is encouraging and supportive all the while demanding compassion, respect, love and commitment…. Thank you simply isn’t enough to express our deepest gratitude.
As a Foreign Service Officer living in Beijing, China, I was looking for a summer music camp for my 15-year-old daughter Gabrielle. By chance, I saw an ad for the Eastern U.S. Music Camp and contacted Mr. & Mrs. Brown. They were extremely attentive and responsive to any concerns we had because my daughter would be doing this on her own while we remained overseas. As it turned out, she was ecstatic about the experience, felt it had tremendously improved her oboe playing and is already planning to return next summer. My only regret is that I didn’t know about Eastern US Music Camp before.
I am writing to thank you for another spectacular year. I enjoyed all of the people I met, the conductors, faculty, and the positive atmosphere your Camp has. It is a challenge to work with new people and always so much fun. I never dreamed camp could be so much fun. I didn’t get much time to express my thanks, so thank you very much for a very special experience.
