The Laurel Lake Music Society supports music education and scholarships for high school students in the local area. It also provides grants to local high school music teachers for their supplies. Additionally, it provides entertainment for the residents of Tryon Estates Retirement Life Community and is totally supported through donations by those residents. Scholarships are provided so high school students who qualify may attend the Cannon Music Camp in Boone, NC each summer. Those students who have attended, and their teachers, have praised the scholarship program and the quality of instruction offered at the Cannon Music Camp. All officers and Board Members of the Laurel Lake Music Society are unpaid volunteers.
