Camp is open to all incoming 5th -12th grade students who have completed at least one year of school band. Led by St. Michael Band Director Dr. Kevin “Doc” Andry and Andy Pizzo, this camp will focus on musical and personal growth in combo work by working to improve the student’s ability to play the melodies of various types of tunes well, both individually and as an ensemble; improvising over chord changes maintaining their place in the form of the piece; and expressing themselves in the group context effectively and emotionally. Students will get to work in smaller combos where they can be placed according to prior experience.
9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
*Campers need a lunch for the break if staying for afternoon camp.
*All band camp attendees will receive a band t-shirt and perform a casual concert for family and friends at 11:30 a.m. on Friday.
*Registered participants will receive an email one week prior to the camp date about safety measures. We will be following CDC recommendations, which may require social distancing, facemasks, and bell covers for instruments.
