Percussion Camp for High School Students – Cancelled for 2020

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, this camp has been cancelled for 2020.  Please join us in June 2021!

Central College Percussion Camp, under the direction of Stan Dahl, is for high school percussionists (students entering 9th grade in fall 2020 to graduating seniors) interested in immersing themselves in the world of percussion.

All attendees will explore, perform, and develop their skills and techniques on mallet percussion (marimba, xylophone, vibes), concert percussion (snare drum, cymbals, tambourine, timpani, etc), world hand drums (congas, djembes), and Caribbean steel drums.

Students will also receive hands-on training in music notation and technology, conducting, music history, and secondary instruments.

Residential campers enhance their experience through a variety of percussion related activities planned each evening.

The Central College Percussion Camp culminates with campers performing an evening concert of percussion music in Historic Downtown Pella for “Thursdays in Pella.”

Camp begins with registration at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June  7 and ends after the performance on Pella’s square and putting away all equipment on Thursday, June 11.
