Middle School Music Camp

June 14 - 18, 2015 • GRADES 6-9


Junior High Music Camp Student

The Middle School Music Camp offers a week of fun and effective instruction through master classes, sectional and full rehearsals, and music electives with our excellent faculty and guest musicians, culminating in a finale performance by all campers. Enrollment is open to band students entering 6th through 9th grades, and orchestra students entering 6th through 8th grades. 9th grade band and orchestra students are eligible to enroll both in the Middle School Camp as well as the High School Camp for a great 2-week transition into playing at the high school level. At least one year of school music experience in the chosen field is required.

Please note that the Middle School Music Camp will end on Thursday this year.

We will keep the 2014 Handbook posted here as it provides basic information that will be retained for 2015.  The 2015 Handbook will be posted here in May and emailed to camp participants.
