The Great Lakes Music Camp (GLMC) is a three-day acoustic music symposium held during October 11-14, 2018 at Camp Blodgett in West Olive Michigan. World-renown music instructors will offer courses, demonstrations, performances and hosted workshops in the name of traditional music education. The GLMC Executive Director, Jason Wheeler, has solidified a fiduciary/partner in the Grand River Watershed Arts/Music Council (GRWAMC) (501c3) for this year’s camp and we are actively seeking sponsorship for this event. Your contribution is vital to the success of this camp and the perpetuation of this program. Proceeds from these efforts are contributed to The GRWAMC, Camp Blodgett (501c3) and other carefully selected nonprofits in West Michigan.
What We Do:
We use music as a tool to pass on traditions and honor the generations before. We use it as a way to communicate and educate. The GLMC does this in the form of workshops and lessons during the three-day camp. We engage the public through benefit concerts. The GLMC steps in where our public school music programs leave off due to recent budget cuts for music programs.
Our goal is to raise money for local watershed clean-up activities, programs, and events in West Michigan throughout the year that enrich our community.
What We Need:
We need community support in the form of monetary contributions so we can perpetuate the mission of The Great Lakes Music Camp and support the noble efforts of the GRWAMC, Camp Blodgett, and our other nonprofit partners.
