Adult Steel Band Homework – Dan on the Corner

MEF/ASU Band Camp

The MEF/ASU Summer Band Camp is back this summer – and a great opportunity for you to keep playing your instrument with other great musicians for a week in the summer on the ASU Campus.  Musicians will get to perform in one of three honor bands, participate in master classes with ASU music professors/Phoenix Symphony musicians, participate in music electives, play in small chamber ensembles, and have the opportunity to serve as mentor to younger musicians in the Student Leadership Team.  Mr. DuPlessis conducts one of the concert bands, and Mr. Jason Caslor (band director at ASU) will direct a new elite wind ensemble band this summer.  Also new this summer, the final concert will be in the world-famous GAMMAGE AUDITORIUM.  We highly recommend this camp – more information can be found at their website.
