ACM Lifting Lives® Awards Grant to Music Camp

Updated on 11/3/2010 3:22:08 PM.

For the second consecutive year, ACM Lifting Lives® will support the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp and provide scholarships for camp participants. The camp is a week-long residential program designed for people with Williams syndrome and other developmental disabilities, ages 16 and older. Campers celebrate music by participating in a songwriting workshop, recording session, songwriter’s night, and a live performance on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. Campers also are invited to participate in research. The next music camp will take place in the summer of 2011.

ACM Lifting Lives® is the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music dedicated to improving lives through the power of music. Each year, ACM Lifting Lives provides grants to music therapy and music education programs. For more information, visit
