CELEBRATE OUR 10th ANNIVERSARY OF CREATING
MUSICAL MAGIC AT MWROC MUSIC FESTIVAL
July 7 – 13, 2019
MNU/Bell Center – Olathe, KS

MWROC X is what we’re calling our 10th anniversary celebration and we’re THRILLED to announce two of our very special guest faculty members, with more announcements and special guests coming soon! The adventurous and cutting-edge Tracy Silverman will be joining us, plus the master fiddler/rocker Alex DePue!

Join us for a week-long intensive musical adventure where attendees explore the depths of their imaginations with the best Artist Mentors in our industry. From movement classes to improvisation, composing, arranging, and much more, MWROC is the ultimate experience to catapult your skills to the next level and beyond. PLUS, you’ll be creating a new network of lifelong friends and colleagues!

“I have to tell you that I get teary reading the incredible feelings conveyed in posts from kids, staff, parents, and adult attendees about belonging, acceptance, relaxing their defenses, immersing themselves in the present, in the music, in the friendships; the pure joy of meeting and bonding with people. I know you understand what you do for these kids and yes it is about the music. But with that comes so much more. You influence these kids for life!!!!”
~ a MWROC 2018 parent

“I am so impressed and inspired by the level of energy and commitment everyone brings to MWROC! This is truly the highlight of my year and one of the finest moments not only for me but for all my wonderful faculty and staff as well. It has been a vision of mine for many years to provide a place for innovation, inclusiveness, experimentation, freedom of expression, and exploring roads less traveled. It is incredibly exciting for me to watch my vision take roots and grow to such amazing heights… thank you for being part of it!”
