ACM, Muzak To Host Music Camps

ACM Lifting Lives™ and the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities today announced plans for the ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp. The Camp will have a dual purpose of studying Williams syndrome and other developmental disabilities, and providing music enrichment through performance and education. The camp will be located in Nashville, and will be open to individuals with developmental disabilities talented in music from around the nation.

With a $30,000 grant, ACM Lifting Lives is fully funding the first year of the camp, which was previously called the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Music Camp.

ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp will be a week-long residential camp offering participants opportunities in a songwriting and recording, culminating in a live performance at the Grand Ole Opry. There will also be visits from top country artists. Last year’s camp featured visits from LeAnn Rimes, Kix Brooks, Eddie Montgomery and more.
