Ellen Mays, Director of Education for WestCare Ohio/East End Community Services shared with us that the East End Miracle Makers Children’s Choir held their first ever public presentation on their final day of the Summer Miracle Makers camp on Thursday, July 21. The choir has been a dream for a long time and we were finally able to pull it off thanks to our partnership with Muse Machine Productions who brought incredible adult talent to teach and lead our little ones!
This performance was preceded by the Q the Music orchestra, made possible by our long-standing relationship with The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance. As part, their kids learn to play viola, violin, and cello. This gives them a pathway into Stivers School for the Performing Arts for middle school and high school students. The new choir also creates that pathway.
Altogether, we had 180 children in this summer’s six-week camp that also marked the 25th anniversary of the camp! The Summer Miracle Makers camp focuses on academic, social, and emotional learning as well as parent engagement.
