Who the Heck is Cory Crossman and What Does the “London Music Officer” Do?
Funny you should ask, next week you can get to know him at London Music Club on Colborne, March 22nd for the “Ask the Music Officer” night!
Read about some of the projects Cory is working on in the London Free Press:
Next week, city politicians will discuss a staff report that suggests some city bylaws may need loosening during the country music event, which runs Sept. 8-11 and includes 35 sanctioned and 35 unsanctioned events.
For example, the city’s noise bylaw and the restrictions around live music on bar patios may need tweaking, the report notes. Staff will report back in greater detail in the near future to council’s community and protective services committee…

We’re adding a CO-ED week
LGRC is excited to be offering a CO-ED session this summer for boys and girls ages 9-13, August 8-12. We believe all girl programming with women staff is important. However after our co-ed workshop over the holidays we recognized the collaboration of boys and girls is equally important. We’re confident our co-ed session will foster a healthy mutual respect between all genders in our music community. We’ll be offering our same great programming, no experience necessary and campers will be writing their own original music.
Growing Chefs Ontario will be providing lunch each day for us
We love Growing Chefs and everything they stand for. They also make delicious food. Read about their ideology and menus here
Home County Arts and Music Festival + Dundas Street Festival partnerships
We’re excited to be partnering with Home County and Dundas Street Festival. Both festivals will be showcasing some of the bands created this summer.
Financial assistance program
We will be providing limited financial assistance to ensure our programming is accessible to anyone who wants to rock. Please contact us directly at email@example.com
Our core team will continue to be primarily women with the addition of a few good men.
As always London Girls Rock Camp is focused on empowerment, confidence building, friendship making and most importantly music loving. Lead by a team of female musicians and industry contributors, LGRC is excited to share our program with the community. No musical experience necessary as we will be guiding campers through a series of workshops and classes.
London Girls Rock Camp welcomes campers who self identify as female, trans and gender non conforming. LGRC is inclusive and will ensure all participants are safe and comfortable.
