Past MSYM Camps

Due to health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Maine Summer Youth Music (MSYM) camp made the difficult decision to cancel its 2020 program. 
In lieu of the traditional in-person event, faculty from the Division of Music collaborated to produce an online version of the MSYM experience that is still accessible.
