It has been 36 days since the Otis Music Camp Grand Finale. The Townsend School of Music that was once filled with lively young voices and laughter is now quiet and the practice rooms are now empty.
The campers left the Cox Capitol Theatre on July 16 but their presence did not. The kids surprised the whole city with their amazing voices and their outstanding multi-instrument playing abilities.
The Otis Music Camp was all that Macon residents talked about for weeks.
With our campers being on high demand, we are incredibly excited to announce that a few of our 2017 campers have been asked to perform at Bragg Jam’s, Arts and Kids Fest on July 29. You will hear the voices of Noah Duncan, Arianna Rivas, Mckenzie Capers, Jordan Smith and many more.
Bragg Jam is a full-scaled community arts festival and Macon’s premier music event. The organization also donates a large amount of money to community causes, including the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail and Amerson River Park.
For more information about Arts and Kids Fest, visit the Bragg Jam website.
