Project Description: 

CAMMO fosters and nurtures the musical talent of veterans and active duty service members by providing them with opportunities to train with professionals, to record, and to perform. CAMMO brings veterans together with industry experts and helps them work toward career opportunities they might otherwise never connect with. In keeping with our Nation's efforts to close the gap of military service for veterans, CAMMO's Experiential Outreach program has successfully built partnerships with industry leaders in the fields of Music (Sony, Universal, MTV) and Television (ABC, NBC, CNN, PBS) as well as opportunities with countless other local, regional, and national productions and events. CAMMO provides music therapy for those who need it most, while giving them the tools to work toward a future in the music industry. CAMMO has thus far placed Musicians, Headline Acts, Supporting Acts, Stage Managers, Production Managers, Musical Directors, Audio Engineers, Production Assistants, Arrangers, Recording Engineers, Production Coordinators and, Casting Directors.
