AHS Orchestra Summer Camp

Join Us for Maroon Orchestra Summer Camp 2024!

August 5th to 9th,
9 am to 12 pm
Austin High School Orchestra Room
$40 per student

Our annual summer camp is a wonderful opportunity for students—especially new students—to bond, learn new music for fall concerts and competitions, work with private instructors by section, get measured for performance uniforms, have fun, and more!

Even if you need to pay with cash or check, please complete the form. Choose pay by check (even for cash), and then turn your payment into Ms. Solis or bring it to the first day of camp.

Please make every effort to have your student attend so they won’t be behind when the school year starts! 

General Camp Information

Each summer, our director and Orchestra Student Council members organize a one-week, half-day camp required for all orchestra students, usually 2 to 3 weeks before the start of the new school year. It’s a wonderful opportunity for students—especially new students—to bond and have fun together.

During camp, we prepare for the new year and begin important instruction and rehearsal. We work on

  • New music for fall concerts and competitions, for all orchestras.
  • Region orchestra audition excerpts
  • Sectional rehearsals led by our private instructors
  • Technique (especially important for students who get a little rusty over the summer months)

Students also:

  • Choose their school instruments
  • Get measured for performance uniforms (dresses and tuxedos)
  • Reconnect with friends!

The cost to parents for the camp is very low, primarily covering the cost of the private instructors we bring in to work with different groups of students, supplies, and snacks.

The camp is also another opportunity for parents to get involved.
