SIDNEY — Gateway Arts Council is honored to announce, thanks to the Komminsk Family Fund, scholarships are available to the Ohio Northern Summer Music Camp.

The funds would provide at least 50% of the cost of the camp. Applications are due May 20, 2021.

Gateway believes that every child should have access to affordable music experiences. The benefits are enormous and plentiful. Education and exposure to music develop sophisticated cognitive learning skills, aids in mathematical understanding, and develop better reading skills. It also helps brain development, academic achievement and personal enrichment. Participation in music is a great way to build lifelong friendships.
