CPHS Band Camp a Great Success

September 23, 2013 No Comments

Forty nine students, six staff and parent volunteers, and ten professional muscians participated in this year’s CPHS Band retreat at Camp Otterdale September 13th to 15th.  Students from from grades 7 to 12 recieved expert instruction from professional musicians in a small group setting.  Students also had a chance to get to know each other during various outdoor activities at Camp while enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.

This is a big jump in magnitude this year with nearly 50 students participating compared to our ususal 25.  Students in grades 7 to 9 were taught how to play their instruments for the first time and how to play their first five notes.  Experienced musicians were taught advanced technical skills in addition to brushing up on the basics.

It was a great camp and fabulous start to the year.  Plans are already underway for the Garnet and Gold Bands to participate in the Atlantic Band festival April 30 – May 3, 2014.
