Summer 2014

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.

Beijing, China

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.

As a professional musician in New York City for 30 years, a business owner and an educator, I’ve had the good fortune of being involved with many music camps over the years. Eastern U.S. Music Camp is absolutely one of the finest anywhere in the world. The quality of instruction and overall experience for the students is second to none.

The wonderful thing about EUSMC is that it has exposed Alex to other school musicians, kids who truly love music and that has motivated and inspired him. Our school is small and there are not many kids who enjoy music as much as he does. So thanks! See you next July.

The lessons I learned at Eastern U.S. Music Camp were instrumental in my future success… in music and in my case, business. I learned to expect the best out of myself. I learned that I could accomplish more than I ever thought I could. I learned to absolutely love good music. I made friends and had fun!

I was traveling through New Britain High School in CT and saw your poster in the school. It brought back memories. I want to thank you for all you have made opportune to me. Camp was a time where I grew musically and become more confident in myself! I will never forget what a wonderful time I had.

I must tell you I was impressed not only with the musicianship of the Camp, but also with the courtesy and self-discipline that was prevalent throughout my stay. I now have the answer when asked, “What is the best summer camp for my son or daughter?

Best experience! We recommend Eastern U.S. Music Camp to everyone. Once every six weeks my friends from camp get together for a reunion. We have a great time together.
