May 5, 2010 – Katy, Texas – The eighth annual summer band camp, offered to next years 7th, 8th, and 9th grade KISD band students, will be held at Katy High School from July 19th to July 23rd.  The camp will include daily section rehearsals, full band rehearsals, and fun music based electives.  Lunch is also part of the camp.  The cost of the camp is $100 and will include a t-shirt if received by June 4th.  Late registration is an additional $25.  The camp concludes with the Grand Concert on Friday morning at 9am.  After the concert, those students wishing to extend the fun a little longer can join in the group’s optional trip to Splashtown Water Park in Spring, Texas for an additional $30 (park admission, meal, bus transportation, and drinks are included in price) for a total camp cost of $130 ($155 after June 4th).  The KISD JH Summer Band Camp has been a huge success each year and we anticipate a large enrollment this year. Plan to register early in order to secure a spot.

Camp participants will audition for summer band camp placement the first day of camp, beginning promptly at 8am.  Students should prepare major scales and chromatic scales specific to the student’s instrument, as well as a band camp audition etude.  Students will be ability grouped with the number of bands being determined by total enrollment for the camp.  Audition materials are available from your Katy ISD Band Director or the Camp Staff.  In addition, an email confirmation is sent out upon registration, along with attachments that include audition materials and the medical form that is required for all participants.

The camp provides an economical and convenient alternative to those who may not have had a chance to attend another band camp over the summer due to scheduling and/or costs.  Participants will receive top quality instruction on their instruments from our own great KISD and Houston area Band Directors.  Join us for the eighth annual Katy ISD Junior High Summer Band Camp and keep your playing skills sharp for next year!  To receive a brochure and registration packet email kisdbandcamp@yahoo.com.  Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
