Gregory Roy and Ian Nie, Turtle Creek Chamber OrchestraShare This:
Turtle Creek Chamber Orchestra was founded by educators and musicians who care deeply for the future of music and education in our society. With many school systems cutting art & music programs, TCCO’s mission is to fill the gap by continuing to inspire and educate young people to the joys of classical music. Their 4 day Summer Music Strings Camp provides students from all socio-economic and racial backgrounds a window of learning opportunity that is not available in the summertime. Their Beloit, WI base, TCCO’s summer strings camp offers students more individualized teaching/training covering music, rhythm, scoring, bowing, intonation, along with teamwork since the camp ends with the children performing a public concert.
