Adam has a dream of being accepted into a Music Conservatory School.  This month he was honored to be accepted into a prestigious summer program called Interlochen Arts Camp in Interlochen, Michigan.  This is a 6 week Camp where Adam will be surrounded by hundreds of other exceptional musicians from around the world.  The students will be taught by world-renowned faculty and have the opportunity to attend performances and presentations.  This awesome opportunity comes at a price, $8900.  Because of Adam's talent he was able to secure a merit scholarship and financial aid, however, he still must pay $5600.  We need $1000 by March 5th for the deposit,  and the balance of $4600 by May 31st.The reason I have set up this campaign is because Adam's family needs our help.  His father was diagnosed with cancer in March of 2016.  This fall his father, Steve, had to take a leave of absence from work to endure a stem cell transplant.  While paying for treatments, Steve and his wife are also paying for their daughter, Gina, to attend Ohio University as a Music major.  She is also an accomplished musician and is a member of the school marching band, the Marching 110.  These expenses, and Steve being on disability, has caused a financial strain for Adam's family.  Adam's music brings peace to his dad when he is  suffering through treatments or feeling ill. His music brings great joy to his family and friends.    Playing the violin, clarinet and piano are Adam's life.  Music is in his soul.It would mean so much to me for everyone to help Adam's family.  They are some of the most generous, loving people I know.   By assisting Adam's family with the cost of attending Interlochen Arts Camp we can all help relieve some of the financial stress they are facing. Not only that, we can help build Adam's music education while helping the music in his soul to continue to grow.
