What do I need for a 3-Day weekend BKX camp?
Aside from your rehearsal gear and paying your Admin Fee and Camp Fee, you should have a sleeping bag, toiletries, water jug and anything else you will need for an overnight stay. Your camp fee will cover all of your meals during the weekend (Friday: snack, Saturday: breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and Sunday: breakfast, lunch). We will have showers available at the location as well:
BRASS: You will need a three ring binder with plastic page protectors, two pencils, your own mouthpiece, a pair of gloves for playing a corps horn, water jug and tennis shoes/clothing that permit movement (leave your jeans at home). Also, bring a black towel proportionate to the size of your horn for when we set the instruments down on the ground. If possible, you should bring your own horn for audition camps as we only have a limited number of corps instruments available. For all auditions, you may play on your concert horn (Trombone, French Horn, C-Tuba, etc.). If you opt to play your audition on your concert horn, you will be asked to play something on a corps instrument during your audition just to see how smoothly the transition will be.
PERCUSSION: Sticks and/or mallets, water jug and tennis shoes/clothing that permit movement (leave your jeans at home). Percussion instruments will be provided–you do NOT need to bring your own drum.
COLOR GUARD: Leather/fingerless gloves, water jug and tennis shoes/clothing that permit movement (leave your jeans at home at least bring their own weapon (if possible). We will provide flags.
