Band Camp Begins at Tech Today


Several hundred students will be on the Arkansas Tech campus this week for the middle school band camp.

This morning students from across the Natural State are registering for the camp in the Doc Bryan Student Services Building, and the camp is scheduled to begin this afternoon.

This marks the 47 th annual band camp at Arkansas Tech, and organizers say students attending the middle school camp have one year of band experience.

Campers will work with musicians to improve on skills specific to their instrument.  In addition to receiving instruction on their instrument, the students will be divided into multiple bands that will rehearse several times each day.

At the conclusion of the camp, each band will showcase its work by presenting a concert.  The concerts will take place Saturday in the Witherspoon Building Auditorium.  There is no admission charge to attend the concerts.

The camp is one of three band camps planned this summer at Arkansas Tech.  Learn more about band camp.
