Middle School Band Camp
UPDATE (April 9, 2020): At Fredonia, the health and safety of our faculty, staff, campers, and families is our highest priority. Based on our current situation and with great disappointment, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Summer Music Festival. We are discussing possible alternatives for online offerings and musical experiences, and will provide more details here in the weeks to come. Stay home, stay safe! We are excited to see you next summer!
2020 DATES: June 28 - July 4, 2020
Registrations submitted after June 5 will be accepted on a space-available basis only.
Open to instrumental music students grades 6 through 8 (including those entering 6th grade in the fall) the Middle School Band Camp offers a friendly and relaxed setting for musical growth through performance of large ensemble and chamber music. Note: Those students entering 9th grade in the fall will be considered for the High School Band Camp.
Most of the Festival Band program faculty are also professors at the university. Outstanding performers and teachers provide unique opportunities for learning, improving technical skills and expanding musicality. In addition to band rehearsals, chamber ensembles and jazz groups, students will attend daily electives, participate in master classes, attend special evening performances, and have time for individual practice and recreation.
