Memphis ROCKS

July 7, 2024 – July 11, 2024

Our newest ROCKS Camp will take singers to one of the heartlands of rock & roll in Memphis, Tennessee! Explore Graceland, Sun Studio, and Beale Street while rehearsing songs that span the history of ROCK, all in preparation for a concert at the end of the week, conducted by Jeff Dokken. Memphis ROCKS Campers will stay at the Hyatt Beale Street, just steps away from one of the most famous streets in rock & roll. The camp will also include educational elements that will explore the history of Memphis at the National Civil Rights Museum and the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum.
