The four-day Central College Winds and Brass Camp, under the direction of Mitchell Lutch, is for high school musicians (students entering 9th grade in fall 2018 to graduating seniors) interested in sharing an exciting musical environment with fellow young musicians.
All attendees will perform in ensembles, and in addition will develop their individual skills and techniques through master classes and lessons. Unique to the Central Winds and Brass camp is the chance to explore, rehearse and perform on Caribbean steel drums – no prior experience necessary!
Students will also receive hands-on training in music notation and sequencing programs of Finale and Garage Band. Residential campers enhance their experience through a variety of music-related activities planned each evening.
The Central College Winds and Brass Camp culminates with campers performing an evening ensemble concert in Historic Downtown Pella for “Thursdays in Pella.”
Camp begins with registration at 9 a.m. on Monday, June 11 and ends after the performance on Pella’s square and putting away all equipment on Thursday, June 14.
