Campers stepped on stage at the Crest Theater in Sacramento Sunday, and, if you popped your head in, you probably took a double take.
“We are rockstars,” one camper told FOX40.
The 33rd-annual Stairway to Stardom concert commenced on stage as dozens of young musicians and artists between the ages of ten and seventeen performed in front of friends, family, peers and judges.
Over the past eight weeks, each and every camper joined a band, wrote their own songs, and learned about the music industry.
“It’s about getting kids together who play instruments and maybe never leave their bedrooms. It gives them a chance to make music with each other play together.” says Skip Maggoira, owner of Skip’s Music and founder of the Stairway to Stardom camp.
The winning band will get to record three songs next week in a professional studio. The others, will get to record one song.
The two month camp costs $300 per person. For more information go to www.skipsmusic.com
