New Collaboration Supports Summit County Music Education
The National Repertory Orchestra (NRO) and Breckenridge Music (BrM) are joining forces to support music education in Summit County. Through Summit County Music Lesson Scholarships (SCMLS), students who are engaged in a music program will have equitable access to private instruction with local musicians and teachers.
Clarinet lessons have been added to SCMLS! The application deadline is extending to Friday, February 26 at 5:00 pm, MST, to ensure all qualifying students get a chance to apply for one-on-one music lessons.
Scholarships may fully-fund after school studies in Piano, Voice, Guitar, Violin, Cello, Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone and Percussion. SCMLS is made possible by The Summit Foundation and other generous community members.
Music Bridges Divides
“The transformative power of music bridges all divides, whether social, economic, racial, gender or geographic,” said Dave DePeters, CEO of the NRO. “Music teaches empathy and understanding while bringing people together in a way that, too often, words may fail. SCMLS is the first phase in using music as a tool to support the great work our schools and parents are already doing throughout the community. The NRO’s DNA has always been education and this program is the next natural step in our evolution.”
