Who should enroll?
The Concert Band curriculum is designed to challenge high school instrumentalists at all levels of concert band experience. Students will be assigned to ensembles based on ability. Exposure to unique learning opportunities for students of all levels is a strength of the Concert Band track. While each ensemble works on a program of music that will raise the bar of individual and ensemble commitment to achievement, the week is about much more than preparing for the final concert.

What do we promise?
  • Exposure to nationally-renowned conductors
  • Training from leading applied faculty on each instrument
  • Chamber music or music theory
  • New and core quality literature to stretch your abilities.
  • Master classes with inside info and tips for better performance on their instrument including: effective use of practice, tone quality, ear training, sight-reading/how to sight read, instrument care, reed choice and reed-making for reed instruments, proper embouchure, breathing and much more.
  • Chance to play with different students from around the nation, sharing their love and joy for music-making.
  • Some members of the top ensemble will also get a full orchestra experience with members of the Orchestra Track.
