February 2021

With the end of February, lots of things are changing. Kids are back in school (in most places) and we are past the half-way point of the school year. People are looking ahead to warmer days and summer plans, including camp.

We're already had our first few Band Camp registrations and are really looking forward to making music this summer. Both Band Camp and Band Camp Junior both run July 12-16.

Go ahead and register now to guarantee your spot. If camps are cancelled for pandemic-related reasons, we'll give you a full refund. 

Here's hoping that this summer we'll all be making some beautiful music together!

Virtual Winds Project

It's truly epic what the combination of keen teenage musicians and dedicated teachers can accomplish in such an extraordinary year.

What I Love Best About Band Camp


“I love all of the people, I think the staff is really awesome and I love all the games we play and activities. I feel like I have become a much better flute player as well and I’ve learned so much. The other kids are great, I feel like we all get along and everyone is passionate about the same things.”
