A brief camp description: 

The 2023 Midwestern Music Camp, for both middle school and high school, will begin on Sundays-all campers (including commuters) check in from 10 to noon.

There will be placement auditions all afternoon, an information meeting and a dinner at Mrs. E’s dining hall that evening. The activities should wrap around 8:30 that evening.

For Monday-Wednesday, we go to an 8:30 am-5:00 pm day schedule for clinics, rehearsals and other instructional activities. The culmination of the camp ends Thursday with an open-to-the-public performance in at the Lied Center starting around 1:00, ending around 3:00 pm. Campers will go home at that time. 

Please note: All registrants will receive a detailed information handbook in May that will also include schedules, health forms and audition information.

Payment options: if you are to receive a Sousa or All-State discount of $25, please email this information to sash@ku.edu. You may go ahead and register your student and “Cancel” out of the payment option-their information will remain recorded in the registration. We will send an adjusted invoice link for payment via email. If you are the beneficiary of a Band of Angles scholarship follow the same steps above and email sash@ku.edu your scholarship acceptance and we will process it.

We cannot wait to see you in June! Thank you for choosing Midwestern Music Camp.

If you have any questions, please email us at musiccamp@ku.edu or sash@ku.edu
