Learn about Summer Music Camp Volunteering in Haiti

Two church members — Paul Manulik and Lindsay Diehl — are taking their musical talents and expertise to help an organization called Building Leaders Using Music Education (BLUME Haiti).  They will travel to Cape Haitian in Northern Haiti on Sunday, June 19,  2016 to volunteer in a summer music camp for children and adolescents.

During his stay in Haiti, Paul will teach music lessons to students as well as train teachers. He will return to Princeton on July 10, 2016. A violist and violinist who founded the Princeton String Academy, he often plays with PUMC’s classical ensembles. Lindsay will spend two weeks in Cape Haitian, teaching music theory. She sings in the Chancel Choir.

BLUME Haiti works with Haitian and international partners to develop leadership skills, awaken individual potential and create opportunities through music education and performance. Affiliated with BLUME Haiti, the Circle of Christian Musicians of Cape Haitian (CEMUCHCA) aims to increase the number of artists of high level throughout the north of Haiti by refining and extracting the most potential talent among children and adolescents in the country. This year’s summer camp will be held on the grounds of an Episcopal school outside of Cape Haitian.


We look forward to hearing from Paul and Lindsay about their mission trip after church on July 31. Meanwhile, for more information on the Haitian Music Program, click here http://www.blumehaiti.org/cemuchca-cap-haitian.html……..
