ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp 2013

For one magical week in June, music-making dreams came true in a unique partnership between the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center and ACM Lifting Lives, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music.

From June 23 through June 28, 30 people with Williams syndrome who have a passion for music attended the 9th annual music camp, made possible by the generous donation of the Academy Of Country Music Lifting Lives.

Campers were from 14 states and Canada. During this weeklong residential camp, campers took part in a songwriting workshop, a recording session, a songwriter's night, and a live performance on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry.
