a weekend rock n' roll retreat for women aged 19 to 99
ROCK WITH US MAY 4 & 5, 2013 - REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
Always had a secret dream to play in a rock ' n roll band? Have a hankering to try something new and challenging in a fun and safe environment? Or just want to meet a bunch of other women who like to rock? Join us for Women's Rock Weekend, our crash course in rock 'n roll for women. To apply just scroll down to our online application form.
Women's Rock Weekend is an intensive and fun-filled introduction to the basics of rock for women of all ages. Participants get instruction on the instrument of their choice (electric guitar, bass, keyboards or drums), learn new skills in a variety of workshops, practice together with other women as part of a band, and then show off their new skills at a final showcase called the Big Gig. The registration fee includes all equipment, meals and snacks, and a Saturday evening party. Not only is the weekend a lot of fun, it's also RC4G's most important fundraiser for our summer programs for girls - all proceeds go to camper subsidies and our equipment fund.
Never played before? No worries. Previous musical experience is NOT a pre-requisite - WRW is all about trying something new. You do not have to bring your own instrument - we supply all gear. (If you have an instrument you'd like to bring, you certainly may.)
WRW starts at 9:00 a.m. sharp on Saturday morning and runs all day Saturday and Sunday, including a Saturday night party. The weekend wraps up with the BIG GIG at 5:00 pm on Sunday. A detailed schedule will be sent to all applicants.
