Summer 2018 Mandatory Band and Guard Camp – Important Dates

Dara Rochlin


Hello Families, as you begin to plan your vacation this summer please make a note of the following:

There will be three weeks in which students must be here.*

Music Camp for all BAND and PERCUSSION students:

Monday JULY 23 to Friday JULY 27 from 5:15 pm to 9 pm

All BAND, PERCUSSION, AND DANCE GUARD have to be at our camp two weeks prior to the beginning of school – This is ALL DAY. Times will be posted closer to the dates:

Monday AUGUST 13 to Saturday AUGUST 25

If you are not able to attend the above camps, a spot in the field show cannot be guaranteed.

Please continue to check our calendar at:

*Percussion/Drumline and Dance Guard students may have an additional camp per Alan Han or Samantha Dobson (Sammie). I’m sure they will inform this to our students as soon as they are able to.

Leaders, will be scheduling sectionals throughout the summer and if any student is in town they are expected to be here for the sectional, unless they are on vacation, internship, or highly important commitment (going to Disneyland, Magic Mountain, etc… is not a highly important commitment). If you had planned something prior to getting notification of a sectional PLEASE COMMUNICATE that with your section leader. Our leaders will do their very best to schedule rehearsals based on everyone’s availability.

This camp will teach marching technique, music preparation and encourage camaraderie for our upcoming marching band season!  We will learn drill for our field show.  Also, percussionists will learn cadence and audition for drumline positions.  Attendance is mandatory.  Bring your instrument, flip folder, pencil, water and snacks.

Mr. Vizcarra

      Hi Beth,

      Junior band camp is for 6-8th graders (for whatever grade they’re going into for the fall). Regular band camp is for incoming freshmen through seniors at the High School. If your student is incoming from Adams Middle School, Auditions with Mr. Vizcarra are this afternoon; Parras – tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon; Hermosa – June 5th. Regular Band Camp is mandatory, and your student must show up on June 23-27 from 5-9 pm for Music Camp; also August 13-24 (times to be determined).

      Hope this helps,
