GRAMERCY BRASS BAND CAMP

 

15th ANNIVERSARY 2019

 

August 5-11




To celebrate our 15th Anniversary Season, Gramercy Brass Band Camp will be making some changes in our program, that we hope will better serve our students and participants.  With our new format, students will have greater access to our faculty (Principal Members of Gramercy Brass Orchestra, Guests and Staff) and will offer better options for both younger and older students as well as adults.  Please review the program descriptions to follow:

 

Gramercy Brass Band Camp

Youth Brass Band Camp Week

Monday, August 5 through Sunday, August 11

Gramercy Brass Band Camp will operate in the same fun and successful manner our fans and students have grown accustomed to, as a Monday through Friday daytime program.  The weekday camp will be aimed at developing younger students, grades 4 through high school. As before, we plan to offer two levels, Junior Brass and Senior Brass, depending on student’s experience.

To sign up for Gramercy Brass Band Camp Youth Brass Band week, please click on the GBBCamp Logo and you will see the option for GBBC Youth Brass Band Camp. This is where you can fill out and submit your GBBC Youth Brass Band Camp registration form.

Regardless of which of the two youth groups you join with, you can be assured of the same challenging music, instructed by many of the principal members of Gramercy Brass Orchestra, you have known from past years.

The GBBC Youth Brass Band Camp week, will culminate with a grand finale concert on Sunday Afternoon, August 11, which will be a very important part for our 15th Anniversary Festival Weekend.

Please look for the Schedule Page and Cost information for the week.

Remember, there may be scholarships available to assist. To apply for a scholarship, please send an email with details pertaining to your request, to: jlambert@gramercybrass.org after you have registered.
