Remarkably, in just six years we have successfully established a preeminent program in which students are expertly guided and inspired to cultivate their musical skills to the individual¡¯s highest potential. Students are trained by talented and dedicated artists who impart their attention and knowledge at a level of dedication which is rare and distinct. At the end of two demanding weeks the young artist develops and matures, and carries within an experience that will not dim over time.
Today we are asking you to participate in our fund raising efforts. Your tax-deductible donation will make a substantial contribution to our musical community and to the enduring future of classical music. Music is the essence of the soul, and in its rightly mysterious manner, intangible. That is why your contribution today and in the future becomes even more valuable.
Our objective is to establish the standard and the dream by which the young artist will measure their musical goals and, to dedicate their lives to achieving excellence while maintaining a spirit fueled by devotion, humor, courage, information, enthusiasm and artistry.
Your gift contributes toward the musical education as well as a lifelong experience of eager and talented young musicians. Our continued success is intertwined with your contributions and we thank you with our hearts and will continue to thank you with the work of the Stony Brook Summer Music Festival.
