Rocky Ridge Music Camp
Five El Sistema Colorado students performed Sunday at the final performance of the Junior Student Seminar at Rocky Ridge Music Camp. The students benefitted from an amazing 12-day music experience at Rocky Ridge Music Center. Students worked with top quality music teachers, built relationships with music students from across the country, and enjoyed the beautiful outdoor experiences at their Estes Park location.The El Sistema Colorado students from Garden Place Elementary and Bruce Randolph Middle School increased their musical skills and expanded their experience playing in a variety of ensembles.
Alto Sax player Beatriz, from Bruce Randolph Middle School, and Clarinetist Carlos, from Garden Place Elementary, perform Sunday in a Wind Ensemble.
A huge thanks to Rocky Ridge Music Center and especially Fred and Connie Platt for providing scholarship funds for our El Sistema Colorado students to attend. None of our students have ever had the chance to attend an overnight-camp before and would not have had this opportunity without the generosity and commitment of Rocky Ridge Music Center and their team.
The five El Sistema Colorado students include:
Carlos, voice and clarinet, 5th grade
Ana, violin, 6th grade
Natalie, voice and violin, 6th grade
Armando, cello, 6th grade
Beatriz, saxaphone, 8th grade
