Mini Camps

The percussion section hosts two mini camps during the summer for incoming freshmen and returning members. 

The dates for summer 2021 are July 11th (10am-5pm) and July 25th (10am-5pm). We are hoping these will be in-person events. 

MINI CAMPS -  are held at the university (Center for the Arts, Puglisi Orchestra Hall) and give incoming percussionists a chance to play on our instruments, learn our technical style and meet the staff. You will also receive show music and new exercises at these camps. If you can make it down for the day, we HIGHLY recommend it. This will greatly increase your chances of getting the position you want!

Mini camps are free of charge. We will send out a quick Google form before each for registration. Attendees should pack a lunch or bring meal money. Parking is in the CFA parking garage at an hourly rate. All percussionists should arrive with their own sticks and mallets as well as copies of all technique guidelines and exercises


INFORMATIONAL ZOOM - we will have a Zoom session on July 7th, 8PMEST. Prof. Ancona will answer questions about anything UD band related including mini camps, band camp, auditions, show music, the season, etc. If you are not receiving emails already from Prof. Ancona, make sure you have filled out an interest form
