“My goal is to create a unique environment for musicians who think outside the box and want to take their playing to the next level,” Wood says. “I’m very proud to say that MWROC has truly become the ultimate training ground for the 21st century musician.”
The Mark Wood Rock Orchestra Camp (MWROC) has been held for one week every summer for the past six years and immerses campers in an intensive educational environment where attendees cultivate self-expression through improvisation, performance, and the latest technology.
“Attendees have the rare opportunity to work with many of the most cutting-edge musicians in their fields, all gathered in one place,” Wood adds. According to one camper’s parent, “The faculty ‘gives back’ by inspiring the artists of tomorrow! I know my son’s life will forever be influenced by his experiences at MWROC.”
All concerts will take place in the state-of-the-art concert hall at Bell Cultural Events Center on the campus of MidAmerica Nazarene University, 2030 E. College Way, Olathe, Kansas, 66062.
