Free URock Music Camp returns to St. Francis Music Center

St. Francis Music Center, Little Falls, is gearing up for the 12th annual URock Camp! Students in grades 5-12 are invited to participate in this free camp. Guitarists, drummers, bassists, vocals, keyboards and other musicians who want to be in a band are invited to attend. You don’t need a lot of experience on your instrument, just some of the basics. Vocalists do not need prior training, just a love of music!

URock Camp starts from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, July 21, at St. Francis Music Center. The instructors will get to know the students, their musical tastes and their abilities. The next morning the group will be divided into bands and the fun begins! Each band will pick a name and three songs they’d like to play. The rest of the camp is spent learning the music and basics of being in a band, rehearsing with the band, creating band posters and getting ready to perform. All music styles are welcome, from rock to country to Christian, and everything in between.

On July 22, 23, 29 and 30, the camp will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The final concert will be held outdoors on Wednesday, August 2, as part of the Green Fair Folk Festival. Participating bands will also have the opportunity to play at the Morrison County Fair.

Young musicians who are questioning whether they have the ability to participate in the camp are encouraged to call St. Francis Music Center and set up a free lesson with one of the instructors. This is a good way for new members to gain confidence in their skills. 

Don’t let your lack of training hold you back from being a rock star!  If you know three chords on your guitar, or have had a few years training on any other instruments, come and join URock—it is free and a lot of fun!

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Five Wings Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Funding for the URock Against Violence Program is due to a grant from Catholic Health Initiatives. These two generous donors allow the camp to be free for all students. 

Space is limited and participants need to register in advance. For more information, contact (320)632-0637, email info@fslf.org, or visit www.sfmusiccenter.org or https://www.facebook.com/stfrancismusic.
