Nat King Cole Generation Hope, Inc. Summer Strings at Lynn University
SouthFloridaSunrise.com Staff report
July 9--Approximately 65 students from seven Palm Beach County schools will be bused to Lynn University to attend the Nat King Cole Generation Hope, Inc. Summer Strings at Lynn University, a camp that provides elementary students without means an opportunity to receive the highest quality string instruction through intensive small ensemble and private lessons.
The students are receiving small group section instruction and private lessons with Lynn’s conservatory students serving as their mentors.
The week-long camp (Monday, July 9 - Friday, July 13) will culminate in a concert to be performed in the Keith C. and Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center on Friday, July 13, 2-3:30 p.m. Timolin and Casey Cole will attend to present certificates to the students.
"The students from my school(KEC/ Canal Point Elementary) are honored and privileged by this opportunity granted us by the Nat King Cole Generation Hope Foundation," commented Alain Goindoo, project coordinator for Palm Beach Schools. "If not for their financial support my students would not have this opportunity to attend a camp like this on a college campus. It is such a wonderful opportunity for our students to engage in active learning on a college campus with a subject they love. It is never to early to suggest college as a future goal to elementary students."
The concert is free and open to the public. No tickets necessary. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The Wold PAC is located on Lynn University’s campus at 3601 North Military Trail in Boca Raton. Please call 561-237-7000 with questions about seating.
Nat King Cole Generation Hope, Inc., the School District of Palm Beach County and Lynn University Conservatory of Music are working together to make this week-long event happen with the Cole foundation funding the cost of running the camp, the school district providing transportation and lunches for the campers and the university donating the space.
