College plans summer band camp
High school and college-bound musicians are invited to band camp at Clackamas Community College for a week of instrumental instruction, rehearsals and performances.
Students will learn from Portland-area musicians in a comfortable college campus setting, with plenty of rehearsal time. The camp runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 11-15, with a Friday evening concert.
"Band camp is perfect for instrumental musicians of all levels who want to improve their skills, play fun and challenging wind ensemble repertoire and learn about music theory," said Lars Campbell, CCC instrumental music director.
Registration is open to students entering grades 9-13 with at least two years of experience in a school ensemble. Students who play the flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, oboe, bassoon, saxophone, horn, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, double bass, piano or percussion are welcome to attend.
The cost is $300. Lunch is available for purchase. Sibling discounts and need-based scholarships may be available. To register, visit clackamasmusic.eventbrite.com. The deadline to register is July 1, and spots are limited. Don't see your instrument on the list? Let us know.
