Terrace joining a 1300 Strong Music Camp in the USA
This July, 47 students and five staff from our Premier Ensembles will travel to the Ball State University to attend Summer workshops and clinics with 1300 of America's best high school musicians. This week long camp of 1300 students, 200 band directors and 150 faculty and is broken into different 'tracks' of study. Students will participate in Concert Band, Choral, Marching Band, Orchestral and Percussion workshops for the concert and marching idioms. The camp is facilitated by Music for All who are America's largest music advocate with a range of faculty who are undoubtedly the best of the best. Video auditions for this camp will be recorded next week to allow camp staff to place our musicians in the correct level of ensemble. The audition music is a level harder than we would be typically expect in Australia and we are looking forward to this challenge pushing us forward to our State Grand Finals – Queensland Catholic Schools and Colleges Music Festival.
After a challenging and educating week at the Music for All camp, the tour party heads to LA where our ensembles will do soundtrack workshops at Disneyland, the Marching Band will perform in a lunchtime parade at Disney and for the Huntington Beach 4th of July parade, the Choir will sing the national anthem at a LA Sparks game WNBA and a 4th of July community celebrations and the whole tour party performing at a stage in the Santa Monica precinct being the end of Route 66.
We look forward to posting images on the College Facebook.
