Description

Participants of the third annual ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp, a week-long residential program open to campers nationwide with developmental disabilities talented in music, will wrap up their camp session with a June 22 live performance on the Grand Ole Opry stage with none other than country music duo Big & Rich! The annual camp has a dual purpose of studying Williams syndrome and other developmental disabilities and providing music enrichment through performance and education. ACM Lifting Lives funds the costs of the camp, enabling the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities to advance its mission of improving the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families through research, training and service.

Campers participate in a songwriting workshop, recording session, songwriter's night, and a live performance on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. Additional country music personalities scheduled to participate in the week's activities include Lauren Alaina, Luke Bryan, Jana Kramer, and Brett Eldredge.

Tickets to the Grand Ole Opry performance range from $24-$55 and are available for purchase at the Opry Web site. For more information, contact the Grand Ole Opry at (615) 871-6779 or visit www.opry.com.
