[026] Young female rockers take center stage in camp showcase concert July 30 at MTSU

MURFREESBORO — Eight bands formed over the course of a week’s worth of hard work and musical fun will display their talents in the culmination of the 2016 Southern Girls Rock Camp.

The camp’s culmination, the showcase concert, is slated for 2 p.m. Saturday, July 30, at MTSU’s Wright Music Hall. A printable parking map is available at

More than 50 budding female musicians from ages 10 to 17 have spent the past week collaborating on instrumentation, composing, screen printing and issue discussion, as well as interaction with professional acts like Sallow, Wu Fei, Sarabeth Taite and Nightblonde.

A $10 donation is requested but not required for admission to the concert. Prizes available to the audience through a silent auction will include a drum kit, a Fender guitar and other musical instruments, as well as gift certificates from several vendors.
