Girls Rock! DC
We are excited to announce that the Watha T. Daniel Library will be hosting a Girls Rock! Instrument Share. Come try your chops at electric guitar, bass, drums, DJ equipment, and more.
The Instrument Share also serves as an informational session about the Girls Rock! DC organization. Check out this video interview with Ebony Dumas of Girls Rock!, featured on the Kojo Nnamde show:
GR!DC provides a week-long summer camp each year for young women ages 8-18. Campers form bands and learn about musicianship, artistic expression and self-promotion. The week culminates in a totally awesome showcase of band talent at the 9:30 Club! They offer financial aid for those who qualify. Read more about their summer camp.
GR! DC promotes positive thinking in young women through musical recording and performance. GR! DC promotes inquisitive thinking in young women by encouraging them to define femininity for themselves. And GR! DC promotes diverse thinking in young women by introducing them to female heroes of rock and roll.
I am super excited about our Instrument Share; can you tell?
Hope to see you there! (Boys allowed, too!)
