The North Central Region of the National Federation of Music Clubs consists of the seven state of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. In addition to our normal participation and support of National Federation affairs, our major activity is support of our creation, the Junior Composers summer music center.
Originally founded in 2002, Junior Composers Summer Programs is a residential music camp for students age 14-20, held at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. JCSP offers three unique programs for young musicians: Studio (two weeks), Institute (one week) and Songwriters (one week). For more information, please v
