Young Writers Programs Summer 2021

The Hudson Valley Writing Project’s online writing enrichment programs bring together students, ages 8-18, from all over the country to tell their stories and develop new friendships. We build safe, fun, collaborative communities in which writers experiment with different forms of writing related to the theme and focus of the camp. Writers have opportunities to workshop their writing with peers and teachers, preparing a final piece to share at a celebratory reading and publish in a group anthology.

The tremendous two’s and three’s are a time to be celebrated! Watch your little one’s independence and self-esteem blossom as she explores her unique abilities and preferences, then runs back to you with pride for a reassuring hug!

Each week your child will love singing, dancing, and playing exciting new percussion instruments with you and her new friends. And you’ll love helping her practice a wide variety of emerging abilities like gross and fine motor skills, turn-taking, social skills, and active listening. At the same time, we’ll learn how to identify our feelings and learn to navigate all the new emotions that come along with being in that fantastic second year of life!

For over half a century, Mary Lou Williams tirelessly persisted as a talented Black woman in the male-dominated field of jazz. A piano prodigy from the age of three, her profound intellect and artistry countered any doubt in securing her rightful place in the ranks of Duke, Dizzy, Thelonious, Charlie, Miles, and others for whom she wrote, arranged, and played for. Music director Chris Pattishall (whose lauded recording of Williams’s “Zodiac Suite” was released this year) leads this uplifting tribute to the fearless mother of jazz.

This concert has been developed in consultation with Dr. Tammy Kernodle, Distinguished Professor at Miami University, current president of the Society for American Music and Mary Lou Williams scholar.

Join Dr. Tammy Kernodle, current president of the Society for American Music and Mary Lou Williams scholar, for a pre-concert talk.
