Gurmat Sangeet Outreach Camp 2018
Detroit, Michigan USA
Raj Academy cordially invites all current students to attend the International Gurmat Sangeet Outreach (GSO) Camp. The camp will be held from 4th to 7th July in Detroit, Michigan, with a screening of our documentary 'Sikh Musical Heritage - The Untold Story' on Sunday 8th July.
GSO Camp offers a unique opportunity to come together for an incredible learning experience from Yogi of Sound Professor Surinder Singh and other Raj Academy teachers and staff.
REGISTRATION HAS NOW CLOSED FOR 2018
The camp provides a highly inspirational environment where students gain a deeper understanding of the Sikh musical tradition, enrich individual learning and get an amazing opportunity to share the sacred art of Gurmat Sangeet.
The camp also brings forth new concepts and techniques best learned through interaction and exchange of knowledge (and life experiences) with a diverse group of individuals. So come and join us for the annual Gurmat Sangeet Outreach Camp in Detroit!
Please note that the camp is open to Raj Academy students only. If you are not a current student but are interested in learning with us or attending a camp, please email gso(at)rajacademy.com.
SPECIAL CAMP PROGRAMS
