Angelo State’s Summer Music Camp offers programs in band, orchestra, marching band drumline and marching band leadership. Register by June 2, 2023. Additional fees apply when registering online.
Students who attend the ASU Summer Music Camp are under the guidance and leadership of ASU faculty and distinguished music teachers to ensure that each student is provided the highest quality of instruction possible.
Our camp is open to students entering the 7 th grade through recent high school graduates. Campers will need to have at least one year of experience on an instrument and be able to read music.
Camp activities include rehearsals, sectionals, musicianship class, a faculty recital, carnival, and afternoon recreation and social time.
Chair Placement Auditions
Students staying on campus will be housed in one of our air-conditioned residence halls. These students will also receive three meals a day beginning with dinner Sunday night.
Commuters: Students in the San Angelo area may choose to stay off-campus. These students will participate in all camp activities and may purchase a meal plan through the Summer Music Camp.
Please note, residents are not allowed to leave campus during camp, even if they have a car. Once students are turned over to us, we provide a safe and controlled atmosphere. Besides, you’re at camp! Take this opportunity to get to know other campers and enjoy the facilities while improving your performance skills.
Meals: All meals are served in the University Cafeteria and students may eat as much as they wish.
Students are under constant supervision by Summer Music Camp staff. Your student’s safety and well-being are our utmost concern.
Registration is due online June 2. Additional fees apply when registering online.
