FMC Benefit Concert Auditions
***Four Week Campers Only***

The FMC Benefit Concert provides campers and staff the opportunity to perform for an
appreciative public, and to raise several thousand dollars for a worthy group. This year the
beneficiary will be Glen Helen, a nature preserve in Yellow Springs, Ohio.

The concert, held at Mills Lawn Elementary School in Yellow Springs, showcases the camps
large ensembles: chorus, orchestra and band in alternating years and often a jazz ensemble. In
addition, staff and student performers are featured. Student performers are selected by a
committee based on an audition during the first week of camp.

Please keep in mind the following criteria when deciding to audition:

Pieces should be learned and thoroughly polished before camp.

You must tell your teacher that you would like to audition when you meet with
them on the first day of camp.

If your piece requires piano accompaniment, you must bring the piano part with
you to camp and give it to your teacher the first day of camp.

Memorization is not required, but is preferable.

Total playing time should not exceed 10 minutes.

Any era or style of performance is acceptable. You are encouraged to enter your
own compositions.

Because the concert is during the third week, only four-week campers may audition.

If you wish to contact your teacher prior to camp to discuss any of this, please let us know
(friendsmusiccamp@gmail.com) and well give you contact information for your teacher.

Computer Acceptable Use Policy and Agreement

We believe that computers are valuable tools for communicating with family and friends outside of the camp community.
We recognize that young people use many different internet resources, including email, instant messaging, Facebook, etc.
We also know that different families have different rules about computer use.

This policy was designed by a committee of staff and campers. In keeping with the Quaker value of simplicity and FMCs
focus on community, the committee felt it was especially important to remind campers to engage in the face-to-face
interactions of music camp and not to use computers as a substitute for this personal interaction.

Our host, Olney Friends School, provides FMC with unfiltered internet access. Computer use by campers is not directly
supervised by either FMC or OFS staff. However, both OFS and FMC work to promote safe, appropriate computer use.
We ask that all campers using computers at FMC comply with the following rules:

Computers are only to be used during free time between breakfast and dinner.
Campers may only use computers in the public area of the school library. OFS computers located elsewhere on
campus (i.e. in staff offices) are off-limits.
When others are waiting to use OFS library computers, computer time is limited to 15 minutes per camper.
We encourage campers to use computers only for personal communication and to look up music-related
Campers may not visit any site that contains profanity, sexually explicit material, or any content that is not
appropriate for public community consumption.
Campers should respect their own and others privacy, and never give out any personal information on the
Campers who bring personal electronic devices that are internet capable must follow these rules.

Inappropriate use of computers will result in loss of privileges for the remainder of camp.
