Chattanooga Girls Rock Camp Showcase Set For July 21

Wednesday, July 11, 2018
Organizers said they are working hard to prepare for Chattanooga Girls Rock camp 2018.  Held at Memorial Auditorium, the independently operated non-profit has more than 60 young women enrolled for its third summer. Campers aged 10-17 will work on their music and music industry skills, make new friends and get comfortable getting LOUD.  While music is the main focus of Chattanooga Girls Rock, camp programming aims to help provide girls the platform and tools they need to tell their own stories and be heard, with a strong emphasis on social responsibility.


Chattanooga Girls Rock is a part of the international Girls Rock Camp Alliance. There are more than 80 Rock Camps for girls in at least 11 countries. At every Rock Camp, young women have the opportunity to experience local/regional woman-fronted bands perform just for them and to participate in workshops that may range from music history to DJing, recording, movement and merchandise making. 

Everyone starts out the week with differing skill levels, but ends the week the same  - with a performance on a real stage in front of a live audience. During camp, participants form bands, write songs and perform an original piece of music. "Want to support the Rock Camp movement and cheer on Chattanooga’s up-and-coming musicians? Come to the showcase on Saturday, July 21.  Family, friends, and adoring members of the public are welcome to attend this extravaganza of young rock stars," officials said.

Chattanooga Girls Rock Showcase will be held from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, July 21 at Songbirds South, 35 Station St. Tickets are $10 and available through Eventbrite.
