  • Some days have adjusted schedules due to week of welcome, Department of Music auditions, etc. Other alterations in the schedule are due to changes in field availability, getting ahead of schedule, and accomplishing set goals.
  • It is not normal or accepted for students to miss camp rehearsals, but if a mandatory conflict arises, please speak with Dr. Brattin to make arrangements and fill out the “Absence Form”! Freshman often have brief, mandatory financial aid or course scheduling meetings required during week of welcome. Music majors often have brief auditions. Again, FILL out the Absent Form after speaking with Dr. Brattin!
  • Students are advised to bring full water bottles, earplugs, hats, sunscreen, and to wear athletic style clothing to all rehearsals. STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR ATHLETIC STYLE SHOES AT ALL REHEARSALS.
  • Students are required to bring positive attitudes, willingness to receive new ideas, the humility to accept a correction, the desire to be a part of something truly great, and raise the bar both personally and collectively.
