About Band Camp:
Rehearsal will be every day, rain or shine. Bring your instrument, sunscreen, shorts, socks, cool shirts, and good sneakers. We do not march barefooted or in flip-flops.
Remember to pack your alarm clocks! Over-sleeping is not a good excuse for being late. Feel free to bring a Bible if you have a devotion that you would like to share with the band.
You will be responsible for obtaining a lyre to hold your music on your instrument during rehearsals, two pairs of band shoes (one black and one white), and the t-shirt that will be worn under your uniform. We will take measurements for shoes and uniforms during band camp.
Band camp is hard work, but it's a lot of fun, too. There will be social activities every evening to help you get to know each other. You will make many new friends that you may not have had if you were not in the band.
If you have questions, you may contact Steven Grimo, D.M.A., Director of Bands, at ftevzb+znybar+rqh.
