About CARMA, Inc.:  Formed in May of 2010, CARMA (Chicks Advocating Regional Music and Artists) is a non-profit organization of individuals whose lives have been touched by music. Our mission is to continue the tradition and proliferation of all musical endeavors through supporting regional musicians and artists.

About the Lawson Academy of the Arts: Founded in 1944, the Lawson Academy of the Arts at Converse College offers quality instruction in music and dance with an excellent faculty, in a professional yet nurturing environment. Lawson Academy serves over 1,000 families each year and encourage students of all ages from preschoolers to adults to join. The Lawson Academy also functions as a “lab school,” introducing Converse music and dance students to the experience of teaching. This experience crosses over to the full arts spectrum during the summer when Converse students staff the Fine Arts Day Camp, where they teach classes in visual arts, creative writing, dance, music, and theatre. The Lawson Academy affords the opportunity for Converse College and the Spartanburg community to share in a wonderful learning experience.

About The Music Camp:  In the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains the Pacolet River carved out a natural amphitheater on a beautiful piece of property we now call The Music Camp. Playing host to bands such as the Greenfield Excursion (the reason for The Music Camp), Belleville Outfit, Stephaniesid, Pierce Edens and The Dirty Work, The Marcus King Band and many others, the camp has become endeared by many and often referred to as “our very own Bonnaroo.”
