Sacramento State Music Camp!

The Summer Music Camp is a week-long camp from July 21st to July 27th. It provides high quality and relevant experiences to each musician, offering opportunities for musical and personal growth. Campers can select workshops and courses from a wide variety of topics and participate in large ensemble rehearsals led by our very own Dr. Andrew Kreckmann, Director of Choral Activities, and Dr. Matthew Morse, Director of Bands. Sacramento State Music counselors will lead campers in team building activities that will create fun and lasting memories. The Sacramento State Summer Music Camp is a fantastic opportunity for students to hone their musical craft and make friends from across our region and beyond!

The cost is only $480 for camp tuition, or $680 for campers staying overnight in our new dorm facilities on campus. If your student would like to register by mail, the application is attached to this email. For online registration and more information, please visit

If you have any questions about the camp please contact Gaw Vang Williams, Director of Vocal Jazz

We need your help!

Help us purchase a piano!

The Ponderosa Bruin Choir is in critical need of a piano to use for our concerts. We don’t have an acoustic piano option and are currently borrowing an electric keyboard from our band program. Our dedicated musicians are deserving of a real, live piano for their performances. The piano (actual piano pictured to the left) would fill a vital need for our choir.

Even with school administration’s unequivocal support, we recognize that the funds available through the school district are limited and can only be stretched so far. Costs associated with running a highly acclaimed choir program increase every year and certainly can’t fund a piano purchase.

We hope you will consider donating to help us purchase this piano. All donations from this drive are tax deductible and will go directly to the piano fund. Please remember us for YEAR END GIVING.

Please write the referring students name in the memo section so they get credit.


Intel employees please note: If you donate through Benevity they will MATCH your donation. Click the logo or head to to find out how you can stretch your donation. If you don’t work at Intel but believe your company might be a member of Benevity or another matching charitable giving program, please speak with your HR manager. Every dollar counts!

Thank you in advance for joining us in our effort to make sure our students have a well-funded and equipped music program that continues to meet their needs in years to come. We look forward to your support!

Special note: Because of the way we are running this fundraiser, completely in-house, your email address and information you share with us will not be sold or used in any other way.

Community Service Opportunity for your student

A student in our choir has recently been working on an Easter Giveback Basket fundraiser with El Dorado Hills Town Center. Basically, the businesses of Town Center have so generously assembled Giveback Baskets, often themed around their own business, that will be displayed in each of their businesses for the next two weeks, then will be raffled off on March 24th at the El Dorado Hills Easter Eggstravaganza. 30 businesses in total have either donated Giveback Baskets, or donated gift cards to be included in one main basket. All of the money made from selling the giveaway tickets will be given to the non-profit New Morning Youth and Family Services, the only youth shelter for kids 12-18 at-risk, abused and/or homeless in El Dorado County.

Any student wishing to sell tickets will receive 1 hour of community service for 2 tickets sold. Tickets are $5.00 for one; 5 for $20; and 10 for $35. Please have any student wishing to earn easy community service points contact Gianna by email . In addition to service hours, the top three student sellers will each win 4 tickets to the El Dorado Hills Carnival (a $112 value)!
