Summer Encounter

The Summer Encounter program is an intensive two-week program that selects approximately 60 fourth and fifth grade students from 14 under-served schools to participate in immersive arts studies, including music, dance and drama.  Meeting Monday through Friday for two weeks in mid-July, Summer Encounter students participate in four to five classes each day, including voice, guitar, percussion, movement, and dance. With the guidance of top arts professionals, participants can discover their inner artist. The program culminates in a final performance for students' families and friends. Students who demonstrate strong interest and ability during Summer Encounter are awarded full scholarships for continued study at the Colburn School of Performing Arts.
