Summer Band Camp for Adults

Hello Fellow Adult Band Members!
We have a new Summer Band Camp for adults, which is at New England Music Camp, near Waterville, Maine.  All adults are welcome, from, “I just started this year,” to “I’m quite proficient,” and including, “Whew, I haven’t played in years!”  There will be two concert bands, a novice/intermediate group and an intermediate/advanced group as well as two swing bands – no auditions; you choose what is best for you.  Camp is the week of August 25-31.
