Music at Maple Mount Reunion

The first Greater Owensboro Music Camp — which most everyone eventually called Music at Maple Mount — began in 1975. On June 7-9, 2024, we will celebrate the 50th year since that first camp by inviting everyone who participated to a reunion weekend. This reunion is part of the celebration year recognizing 150 years since the Ursuline Sisters arrived in what is now known as Maple Mount.

The reunion will occur Friday through Sunday, June 7-9, 2024. We will begin with a meet and greet on Friday evening in Owensboro, then continue with many events at the Mount on Saturday and Sunday, concluding with a concert on Sunday afternoon. See full schedule below. Registrations for meals on the weekend have closed, but campers who haven’t registered are welcome to stop by any  of the events.

If you have questions, contact Dan Heckel at [email protected], or 270-229-2007.
