After a two year break due to COVID, band students in both Queens and Kings counties will once again have the opportunity to participate in a band day-camp this summer. Registration is now open for students entering grade 8 (intermediate level), grade 9 and grade 10 (senior level). East Wiltshire has always had a high participation rate at the summer band camp at the beginner, intermediate and senior levels. I hope that students will once again take advantage of this amazing opportunity to work with professional musicians and music educators to advance their individual and ensemble skills.
Dates: Aug. 22-26 at Colonel Gray Sr. High School
