Band programs are held during Sessions 2, 3, 5 & 6. In addition to full band rehearsals, campers have opportunities to participate in chamber ensembles, jazz bands, sectionals, master classes, Fundamental classes (music theory) and reading bands. All campers are encouraged to take private lessons with the artist-teaching staff. The Middle School sessions are open to students completing grades 6 or 7-8 who have played two or more years. The High School sessions are for students completing grades 9-12. Campers may be selected to participate in the International Wind Ensemble (IWE), designed to challenge the advanced player.
