We are looking forward to welcoming back past campers and newcomers. The hopes of a ripple effect coming from the positive impact of the camps are to reach, strengthen and unite women. Even though SoundGirls.Org has numerous events throughout the year to help and empower women in music, the positive influence that the camp has on next generation of professionals in audio goes without speaking. Past testimonials of campers can without any doubt paint the picture of the importance and joy that was brought to the girls with this experience.
“The week-long class allowed me to learn the basics of stage plots, setting/striking gear, navigating analog/digital consoles, and working with a live band before ultimately sharing the responsibility of mixing with a professional at an annual music festival in the area.”
“Through workshops like these, I think we can change the current trends. Someday soon long gone will be the days of the lone SoundGirl.
