ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp was in session last week in Nashville, Tenn. with campers from around the country participating in a week of activities and excursions around Music City.  The residential camp has the dual purpose of studying Williams syndrome while providing music enrichment through performance and education.

On Friday, the week-long camp wrapped up with a performance on the Grand Ole Opry with Chris Janson.  Campers sang their original song, “Bright Eyes,” which they wrote at the beginning of the week with The Band Perry.

The camp also included a trip to the Wildhorse Saloon with The Swon Brothers, a recording studio session with Lee Brice and producer Ross Copperman at Ocean Way Nashville Recording Studios, a karaoke night at Winner’s with Brett Eldredge and Wynonna, a trip to the Bluebird Café with Casey James and a Meet & Greet with JT Hodges

The camp is a partnership between ACM Lifting Lives and Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Vanderbilt Kennedy Center’s Music Camp and the 5th year that ACM Lifting Lives has been involved.
