$1 per ticket will be donated to both Hope Notes and Suwannee Kids Music Camps. Hope Notes is a new park led program that raises money and instruments to provide instruments for local school music departments. As you know, Kids Music Camps are 4 annual free kids music education programs that anyone can come to. We are also holding a food drive for Love Inc.
Live Oak, Fl. based Love INC. is a charitable organization that helps our community in many ways, including feeding the hungry and supplying everyday items and services to folks in need.
Founded in 2015 by Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, Hope Notes collects musical instruments and raises funds to donate to music departments in local schools.
The Suwannee Spirit Kid’s Music Camp was born out of a dream by Miss Jean Cornett to have a camp for kids based out of The Spirit of the Suwannee that was similar to a kid’s bluegrass camp at The “Festival of the Bluegrass” Who Miss Jean and the Cornett family started. Today the Suwannee Spirit Kids Music Camp averages an attendance of 115 kids per camp weekend. Instruction includes guitar, mandolin, banjo, bass, fiddle, harmonica, ukulele, vocals and hand drums. There are also regular guest appearances by regional and national artists. Not only do the kids explore music in this environment but they also get to experience an uplifting and rewarding social event created just for them.
