Mini Camps and Audition Camp

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

The tentative dates for summer 2024 are July 14th (10am-6pm) for mini camp and July 28th (10am-6pm) for the audition camp. 

All new members must audition on July 28. If you are not free to audition live, you must send a video audition. Live is preferred. Veterans who wish to play a different instrument must audition on the 28th. Veterans returning on the same instrument need to contact Jim Ancona to fill out the returning veteran form.

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 - TBD for summer 2023.
