Summer Notes Week 1

 


Join us this summer
Summer Notes Week 1

Bravo to our String Society 2018 campers!

Over the course of the week, the/our campers worked hard to produce beautiful music.
The Grand Finale Concert was dynamic and diverse, featuring a range of music from the Beatles to Bach. Concert-goers were also privileged to see the Brooklyn-based chamber music ensemble, Project Trio, who played alongside our campers.
Big congratulations to all involved!

This week our D-E 360° Summer Connections Enrichment campers enjoyed Basketball, Cricket: The British Game, Junior Chef: Breakfast Club, and so much more! Scholars embarked on courses that will help them build confidence and gain credit for future academic work, including algebra, biology, chemistry, and physics to name a few.
