This just in from Girls Rock Philly! (which, earlier this month, wrapped up its 2010 camp with a record-release show at Johnny Brenda’s): The music and mentoring nonprofit organization is now accepting applications for its second annual Ladies Rock Camp, which will take place at Freire Charter School next February, culminating in a showcase performance at Tritone on Monday, Feb. 21st. The tuition fee of $400 will pay for one girl to attend next summer’s Girls Rock Philly! camp—which we probably don’t have to tell you is one of the most awesome initiatives in the city.
Ladies Rock Camp is open to women ages 19 and up who are ready to rock out to get the full rock camp experience. Lady rock stars will have the opportunity to learn a new instrument, improve existing skills, collaborate, write songs, attend music workshops and network with other women musicians. Campers will start a band and perform in the end of camp performance to showcase their rock ‘n’ roll skills. Throughout the weekend, the camp will also feature workshops with topics related to being a lady rocker in addition to providing an opportunity for participants to network with other women musicians in their area.
You can find more—including online registration info—at the GRP website.
