MACON, GA, May 20, 2020- The Otis Redding Foundation will go digital with Otis Music Camp 2.0. The virtual experience will be held June 8-12, with the continued mission of enhancing and motivating young minds in music and the arts.
To ensure that kids do not miss out on the immersive music camp due to COVID-19, ORF has released its latest update of the camp, OMC 2.0. This version will feature group vocal warm-ups, master class presentations and access to their own home studio using the platform Soundtrap.
Students will have access to industry professionals such as: Flint Dollar, Jayme Alilaw, Kimberly Epps, Vinson Muhammad and more. Master classes from Universal Music and Concord Music Groups will give campers career tips on branding, songwriting, collaborating and protecting their work. Other special guests will include YouTube star Alex Aiono, Billy Mann (writer/producer for P!nk, Cher, John Legend and more), and Nashville recording artist Bren Joy.
“We are excited to present the 2020 Otis Music Camp 2.0 during these difficult times. Moving to this platform allows the coaches and kids to collaborate and connect in entirely different ways while still maintaining the integrity of the camp.” said Karla Redding-Andrews, VP/Executive Director for the Otis Redding Foundation.
Camp registration is currently full. Parents and students are encouraged to sign-up for personalized virtual music lessons in voice, piano, guitar and engineering through the Otis Redding Center for Creative Arts.
