Junior High Bands

July 7-13 and July 14-20

For students completing grades 5 – 8

Designed for junior high students who play wind, brass and percussion instruments, the primary focus of this program is developing individual musicianship through a large ensemble setting. During the week of July 7-13, students who express an interest in orchestra will be considered for placement in the Junior Orchestra instead of band. Classes include full ensemble and sectional rehearsals, master classes, and elective courses.

Here is what a typical day in the Junior Bands program will look like:

  • 8:15- 10:30 am: Full Band Rehearsal
  • 10:45- 11:45 am: Sectionals
  • Noon- 1:15 pm: Lunch
