Stephen Collins Foster Music Camp
February 08, 2016 | www.jenningsfoundation.net
image The Music Department is gearing up for another summer of the Stephen Collins Foster Music Camp, and we were recently reminded about how the Foster Experience now stretches across generations.

John Williams, a junior euphonium player from Jennings County (IN) High School, will be attending his fourth season this summer. He states, "Foster Camp has been very important to me. It has helped me grow not only musically, but as an individual. I really enjoy meeting all the students from the other schools."

image Williams has recently joined with the Jennings County Community Foundation to create a scholarship program so that other students from his high school can attend Foster Camp. "My goal is to raise enough to support four band, four orchestra, and four vocal scholarships," notes Williams. "I want others to have the same opportunity that I have had and to also help our school's music program."

Williams is the grandson of Tom Taylor (BME '70, MA in Ed '73), who is a former EKU graduate assistant for bands, as well as former Band Director at the Model Lab School. Taylor served as the Administrative Assistant for Foster Camp during the summers of '72, '73, and '74.
