Summer always brings lots of entertaining events to Geauga County and northeastern Ohio. In particular, music can be heard echoing nearly everywhere. Those with a theatrical inclination also find that warm weather helps liberate the soul. It is the season for leisure days and solar rays. What follows here is a brief overview of festive events that promise to make the season special for everyone:


Amateur Musician Nights - Held at Chardon Brew Works & Eatery on Historic Chardon Square and conducted by Geauga Music Center. We provide the equipment and you bring your 3 favorite songs (a 10 minute time limit applies). Come early and enjoy dinner and a microbrew. First and Third Saturday of every month at 8:00 p.m.

Jam Session for Adults Only - Held at Chardon's own music store. Bring your instrument and play with our teachers. Doesn't matter how rusty you are, this is just for fun. No teenagers or other children! (sorry guys you have plenty of stuff, let your folks have one event just for them) Homebaked goodies from Anne Marie always make it worth the visit. Second Friday of every month at 7:30 p.m.

Summer Jam - Sponsored by the Chardon Community Action Team, City of Chardon and Geauga Music Center and held on Historic Chardon Square. We book teen bands, duos and soloists for an all day music festival! There are activities, food and fun - June 25th.

Summer Rock Camp and Summer Rock Camp II - A week and a half long day camp held in June right when school lets out and held again in August right before school goes back in session. We cover Rock History, Music Theory, how to pick songs, how to pick a band name and then do a lot of rehearsing. Summer Rock Camp plays at Summer Jam and Summer Rock Camp II plays on GMC's Summer Recital. Dates for Summer Rock Camp are June 15th-June 17th and June 20th-June 24th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
