The Shalala MusicReach Summer Institute Goes Virtual

From mid-June to August, the Shalala MusicReach program will host its second annual Summer Institute, funded by the Children’s Trust… but this time with a twist.

The Shalala MusicReach program at the Frost School of Music is gearing up for a summer filled with unique musical experiences for youth across Miami-Dade County. From mid-June to August, the Shalala MusicReach will host its second annual Summer Institute, funded by the Children’s Trust… but this time with a twist. Our tuition-free summer program will be 100% virtual. We want to keep you and your families safe and healthy and at this time and we believe that offering a virtual Summer program is the best way to do this presently. Students will learn about music technology, digital media creation, performance practices, college prep, and more! There will also be special virtual experiences including masterclasses and virtual field trips. “Although we are not meeting in person, we are looking forward to the opportunities hosting a virtual camp offers,” says Director of OutReach, Dr. Melissa Lesniak. “Students will have the opportunity to engage with the Institute on a daily basis if they choose, instead of twice a week and they will learn how to use technology to become more in-tune with their musical careers.” We are looking forward to this new educational music experience, and we hope you will join us. Students in 7th-12th grade who reside in Miami-Dade County are welcome to register. For more information visit: https://musicreach.frost.miami.edu/programs-and-projects/summer-camp/index.html
