The 2020 Saskatoon Band Camp will be held August 9-14. For the past 34 years, the Saskatoon Band Camp has been generously hosted by the Department of Music, in the Education Building, at the University of Saskatchewan. This year’s camp will be, once again, action-packed with many activities to make your week both educational and fun!
The Saskatoon Band Camp welcomes both Junior and Senior students, from grades 5-12, and offers comprehensive musical instruction for Woodwind, Brass and Percussion students who have a minimum of one year of playing experience on their instrument.
We have an excellent staff of qualified band and education professionals lined up who are excited to share their vast musical knowledge with camp participants. Aside from the many musical activities we have planned, (students will participate in Full Band, Sectionals, Private Lessons, Small Ensembles, Jazz Ensemble, Composition, and various other music-related classes) we also include a number of social activities to give participants a chance to relax and meet many new friends.
The camp begins with Camp Registration and Auditions on the afternoon of Sunday, August 9th, then begins each morning (August 10-14) at 8:50am. Pickup time Monday to Wednesday is 4:30pm, and Thursday at 8:00pm – a detailed schedule of this year's week of camp will be sent out closer to the camp date.
The 2020 Saskatoon Band Camp will conclude with two public concerts on Friday, August 14th, allowing participants to showcase all they have learned in one short week. At 10:30am, our Small Ensembles will be performing and at 1:00pm our final full band concert will be held. Both concerts will be held in Quance Theatre, Education Building, U of S.
Join us for either concert, or both, if you're able!
