Campers have the opportunity to participate in concert bands, jazz bands and a variety of wind and percussion chamber ensembles during an action-packed week of rehearsals, clinics and concerts. (All campers are required to participate in a concert band). Evening activities include faculty and student recitals, clinics and performances by the University of Nevada, Reno music faculty and a variety of recreational and team-building activities. Campers will receive small group instruction and will perform in ensembles under the direction of some of the finest music educators in the country. They will also have the option to register for private lessons with these music educators.
The talent show will feature our finest student musicians. Campers wishing to perform must audition. Sign-up sheets will be available beginning Sunday at dinner time.
Talent show participants must bring an accompaniment CD or piano accompaniment for the staff accompanist to play for your presentation. Piano accompaniment for solos must be emailed to email@example.com at least two weeks prior to camp.
The talent show will have a judging component. Winners will be announced and will receive scholarships (full or partial scholarships) to next year’s Lake Tahoe Music Camp!
