Vivace Orchestra Camp begins in 5 days! We’re furiously finishing our preparations to create a memorable camp for all our students. We hope you all have printed your music and have been practicing away. The rehearsals and concerts go better when students have learned the music.
We get a lot of questions about the camp, what to expect, what to bring, how is covid affecting the camp, etc. So many questions in fact we decided to provide some answers to some of the most frequently asked questions. Please make sure you’ve reviewed them to prepare for camp. Especially the COVID requirements, and what to bring. Some of the information there is helpful (how to assemble your music, and the value of clothes pins to an outdoor musician), some of it is essential (you must have a signed waiver, and instruments with endpins must have a rock stop or rubber endpin tip).
We’ve recently posted the 2020 schedule! Our concerts are currently scheduled to be outside due to COVID restrictions. If by some miracle that changes before the concert we will move it indoors (but the times would remain the same).
Please note the check-in times on Monday (they’re a little earlier than the normal start times the rest of the week). When you check-in, come in the entrance on the west end of the south side (we’ll have signs). They will likely have the rest of the school blocked off, so if you go in the main school entrance, you won’t be able to get to the camp. At sign-in, please bring a signed waiver for each student. You’ll be given your lanyard and camp shirt, and then proceed to chair auditions. On Friday we have our final rehearsals, so note the later start times. We’ll have dinner for the students before the enrichment concert / faculty recital at 7.
We’ll have a few more updates before Monday so stay tuned!
