Here is what a student’s week would look like:

Day 1 | Saturday: Welcome & Introductions! Students will be introduced to their instructors, counselors, and fellow peers. Get ready to break the ice with some fun activities and games. They will also be introduced to the different instruments available for them to learn. Would you like to play strings? Wind? Percussion?

Days 2-5 | Sunday – Thursday: Learning & Practice! Students will explore and learn what makes the Lao culture unique. They will also get a chance to practice their music pieces as a group. Classes and practices will be held at TBD.

Day 6 | Friday: Performance Day! After bonding with each other and a weeks worth of practicing, the students are ready to put on the final show for the community.

Day 8 | Saturday (optional): Fun Day! Unwind from the jam packed week by exploring the Twin Cities.
