One of the parts of the Music for All Summer Symposium that makes it special is the welcoming and closing activities for parents. Music for All understands that our mission not only includes students and directors but parents and communities as well. For one week, we strive to create a kind of community that cares about everyone involved. Bringing parents in on both the beginning and ending of Symposium significantly ties together the experience for students and their families. Plus, it provides a bridge from home, to what we do at Ball State, to back home again – where ideally the lessons learned at camp are brought to life the rest of the year.
