Narrative
Dates: June 14-20, 2015
Locations: Columbus State University’s Schwob School of Music and Legacy Hall at RiverCenter for the Performing
Arts, 900 Broadway, Columbus, GA.
Artists/consultants/leaders involved, including a synopsis of their credentials and experience: YOGC’s music director
and conductor, James Palmer, has over 20 years experience as a high school orchestra director and a youth orchestra
music director in Florida and Georgia. He is a sought after orchestra adjudicator and guest conductor throughout the
state of Georgia. YOGC’s Executive Director has successfully led the organization into its 20 th year and manages all
aspects of the program including development, programming, fundraising and recruiting. YOGC will hire nine additional
professional musicians and music educators to work with the students in instrument sectionals and technique classes,
music theory, music composition and instrument care and cleaning. YOGC board members and volunteers will provide
assistance with logistics, recreation, lunch and will serve as ushers for the performances during the week of camp.
Total number of audience/participants expected: We anticipate 60-80 students to enroll in camp, 10 music faculty and 3
staff members. A concert will be presented 4 evenings during the week of camp with an anticipated audience of 100150 and the concert culminating the week’s activities will attract approximately 200-300 guests. Our featured guest
artist will be promoted and should have a wide audience appeal.

Narrative
We are going to do a festival with lots of components. We want to have
music this year. We are excited that so many artists want to participate,
and the music will add a lot to the festival. A lot of people attend every
year and we get a lot of reports that it is the most fun event of the year.
We want the festival to be bigger and better every year, and music will
be a great thing to add. Susan Weaver is helping us put everything
together, and Joe Smith will help. The ARJC can sometimes do some
things, too.
