A fun event that can be enjoyed by ages 5 to 100 -- autism and other abilities welcome!
Camp Azure provides children on the Autism Spectrum with an affordable and unforgettable Summer Camp experience through San Francisco Recreation and Parks. Our first session last Summer was a great success! For 4 weeks, 32 kids ages 6 to 12 had a chance to enjoy outdoor fun and to "just be kids" alongside their peers. We had a long waiting list, though, and so we are happy to announce that this coming Summer, Recreation and Parks plans to expand the camp to 8 weeks!
Because of the need for specialized staff, and our strong belief that families with autism should be able to enjoy the exact same affordable summer camp rates as other SF families, we are once again organizing our annual concert to help raise the funds needed to run Camp Azure.
The New Galileo Quartet and Stephen Prutsman on piano will play an original composition Stephen wrote to accompany the screening of a Silent Movie Comedy Classic. So, music and film will be playing simultaneously, and audience participation is strongly encouraged. All ASD kids are also welcome to come and make some noise!
Classical music lovers will appreciate the many tongue-in-cheek musical references in the piece. The performance earned "Best of Festival" at the 2007 Spoleto USA Festival and after a performance this past October at the Barishnikov Center in NYC the New York Times wrote:
"Mr. Prutsman's multistyled facility was given full vent [with] a jazzy, eclectic and inventive score...[the] players and Mr. Prutsman received a heartyovation for their vibrant performance"
