My name is Eric Friel, and I am a cellist from Park Ridge, IL. I recently went to Blue Lake Fine Arts camp, and I was lucky enough to be a part in the International Youth Symphony Orchestra! Next June, we will leave for a month-long tour of Europe, where we will be visiting six to seven different countries and playing multiple concerts in each. As you could imagine, this isn't an inexpensive trip, and even if you could contribute a little bit, it would be greatly appreciated. This opportunity would be a great stride in my musical journey, and help me with my education beyond high school. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to look at this, and help me be able to reach my goal so I can be able to go on this once-in-a-lifetime trip!
