The NCBS Walker Creek Music Camp Scholarship Fund has awarded tuition assistance to enable two students to attend the April 9-12, 2015 camp near Petaluma. One is a local college student (and bluegrass DJ) who will study guitar, and the other is a 12-year-old who will study banjo and fiddle at the camp.

Thanks to the generous donors and to the NCBS committee that manages this project. The fund will soon begin collecting donations to help deserving students who want to attend the Fall 2015 camp, set for October 8-11.

Thanks for your support of music education in our area!
