Pre-camp information will be available on this website three weeks prior to the start of camp. Pre-camp information includes health form, audtion music, check-in and out times with locations, confirmed daily schedule, what to bring and other important information you will need to know before attending camp. Each camper must complete the healthEcamper online form at least 24 hours prior to arrival for each camp they attend; no camper will be allowed to participate without completing the form. Use the email address provided to register for this camp as your user name on the healthEcamper website to avoid receiving emails from us indicating you have not completed this health form.
We do not place campers in “chairs.” You will be asked to play the provided music, a scale, and something you’ve prepared during these auditions. These auditions are designed to place the camper in the appropriate band. Audition music will be available in pre-camp information.
The prepared piece can be a solo, etude, or piece of band music you've played. You will be asked to play a chromatic scale and a major scale of your choice as well as the camp supplied audition material. The audition places campers in the correct level band. Any student wishing to perform on the Honors Recital will need to complete a second audition on Sunday in order to be considered. Any student who wishes to be in the Jazz Ensemble should bring some piece in the appropriate style which shows their ability in this area. The Jazz Ensemble auditions will be conducted separately from the band placement auditions also on Sunday.
You are expected to furnish your own instrument(s) and have it in good working order. In addition, you should come with an ample supply of reeds, valve oil, drum sticks, etc. as there are no facilities at which to purchase these items. Students who wear braces are advised to come prepared with an ample amount of wax or other mouth protection for the duration of the week. Electronic instruments will be provided as well as percussion instruments; however, percussionists must bring their own sticks and mallets. Instruments will be secured at the Center of the Arts in a locker or locked room (lockers are assigned on Sunday).
