Farewell Summer...
Hello New School Year!

The Project STEP students have returned from their summer adventures (see photos above) and the 2015-2016 school year is officially underway. It has been exciting to hear about the range of experiences that our students participated in this summer, from attending camps like BUTI and Apple Hill to traveling around Iceland, Germany, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic on orchestra tours.

Earlier this month, Project STEP students, staff, families, and Board members gathered together at our annual Opening Day Meeting to reunite returning students and welcome new faces into the Project STEP family. Needless to say, it feels great to be back!

Summer Camp Spotlight
Maria (8th grade, pictured above) reflects on her summer camp experience and the role that music can play in developing leadership:

"Todd made me section leader of the cellos. I am really proud to have gotten to lead a whole section. It came with a lot of responsibility but I loved it. I learned that leading a section can make you be very admired by the younger kids...I started to notice how much they looked up to me and tried to be just like me. This made me feel phenomenal. I felt like a mother duck, setting the example for the little ducklings. I loved my experience at MOTH [Music On The Hill] this year and can't wait to go again next year."
Coming Up
We are thrilled to be jumping into our second year of the Triple Helix Piano Trio residency at Project STEP! That means six more workshops over the course of the year, the first of which will take place this Saturday, October 3rd. Trio member and violinist Bayla Keyes will share her wisdom and expertise with several STEP violinists and violists.
