There are two different age camps this year:

Primary Concentrations include:

Concert Band (Junior and Senior High)
The Concert Band is an ensemble of wind and percussion instruments performing traditional wind band repertoire, as well as new 21st century compositions. The goal of the ensemble is to expand the knowledge of each student to wind band repertoire and to achieve an artistic level of individual and ensemble performance.


String Ensemble (Junior and Senior High)

The String Ensemble offers students a fun and focused experience. You will learn new pieces and explore playing different genres, including standard classical repertoire, Blues improv, rock/pop, and fiddling. There are opportunities for solo performances and playing in chamber ensembles. Have an electric string instrument or want to try one out (violin, viola, cello and 5 string violin)? We will explore the uses of electric string instruments in practice and performance. Electric instruments will be made available.


Choir (Junior and Senior High)

Choir provides the opportunity for vocalists to continue their choral development through a significant singing experience. Experiences will range from small vocal chamber ensembles to a full choir. Repertoire will include classical, jazz, and musical theatre.


Jazz, Rock, and Blues (keyboard, guitar, bass, and percussion) (Senior High)

In a hands on, small, group environment, you will work in different styles and settings. Expand you knowledge of chord theory, scales for improvisation and comping. This is an upbeat and fun way to develop your chops. Jam sessions, song writing, and small group instruction.
