Brass Camp

June 21-26, 2021

This week-long workshop is open to rising 9th through 12th graders and will focus on the fundamentals of brass performance and practice. Students will gain experience playing in large and small ensembles in both matching and mixed instrumental combinations. Students will also participate in daily warm-up sessions and masterclasses. Nightly recitals will feature performances by Stetson Brass Camp faculty and staff, as well as selected workshop participants and chamber groups.

Auditions

All participants are asked to submit an audition video by Friday, May 28, at 5:00 p.m. to be judged by the Stetson University brass faculty. The selection process will be based on the submitted audition tape and instrumentation needs. Sixty students will then receive an invitation to attend the camp, and alternates will also be invited to join the waiting list. In the event that a student is not invited to attend, the deposit will be returned. Please review the Audition Music guidelines below for more information. If you have any questions, please reach out to Ryan Sorenson, Brass Camp Director. 

Additional details (including the Welcome Packet) for the 2021 camp will be available at the end of spring. In the meantime, the 2019 camp documents will remain available for review.
