What to expect:

These camps are designed to allow for individuals to understand how the audition process works and practice with others and the section leader to help prepare for the audition. The section leader or a representative will attend all of the camps and lead the sectional clinics. There will also be an ensemble clinic in which all of the sections will practice material together. We will be going over the posted music as well as pregame and cadences. It is highly advised to come prepared and able to play these parts. If you don’t, this takes away from the advise and and instruction the leaders can give to help you improve and prepare for auditions. The first round of auditions will be based on the posted music.
