Welcome to the Music for All Summer Symposium, presented by Yamaha
Music for All has been providing positively life-changing experiences at its summer camp for 40 years. It’s “America’s Camp:” the national summer learning experience for band and orchestra students, and teachers. We bring together the best faculty, exciting concerts and events, and students from band and orchestra programs from coast-to-coast who share a love of music-making, performance, and student leadership.
