Workshop 2020 Update:
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we have had some changes to our workshop schedule. We are still actively monitoring the situation and will post updates as new information is released.

Registrations are open for concert week but marching week is cancelled due to Yamaha canceling Sounds of Summer this year. In the event that we must cancel concert week, full refunds will be given.

If you have any further questions, DM us and we’d be happy to answer them. We encourage everyone to do their part to safe home and stay safe. We love all of our campers and would love to see them this summer, but we will have to see what happens. 🎼❤️
