2019 AU Band Camp Performance
June 21 @ 6:00 pmFree
Friday, June 21st, 2019 | 6 PM | Maxwell Theatre
The Augusta University Band Camp is open to rising 6th-12th grade band students with at least one year experience. It provides middle and high school students with intensive musical experiences and plenty of fun. This year’s camp will include the large ensemble, jazz band, jazz improvisation class, masterclasses, and electives. Our program will separate middle and high school students as they work on music that is appropriate for their skill level.
The Friday evening concert is at 6:00 p.m. and is a demonstration of much of the music the campers have worked on throughout the week. It is approximately 90 minutes long.
We are excited to announce that world-renowned jazz trombonist, Wycliffe Gordon, will once again be on staff to direct our jazz bands and lead an improvisation class. Wycliffe Gordon is one of the nation’s foremost music educators having held positions at Juilliard School of Music, Michigan State University, Manhattan School of Music in the Jazz Arts Program and is currently Artist in Residence at Augusta University in Augusta, GA. Gordon is regularly featured as guest faculty, teacher, clinician and conductor for All-State festivals, band clinics, the Louis Armstrong Summer Jazz Camp, the Int’l Trumpet Guild, the Int’l Trombone Festival and countless other high school and university programs and guest appearances.
The concert is free and open to the public.
