Band Camp 2019!

August 12, 2019

Our JICHS Band Members just finished an intense, week-long Band Camp! This year proved to be much different than in years past. Instead of a traditional marching band camp, students participated in an all-immersive, cutting-edge camp that highlighted ALL aspects of the JICHS band program. After hours of rehearsals and planned social activities, the week ended with a Showcase performance where every student performed in 3 groups: Concert Band, Pep Band, and a Small Ensemble (Flute Choir, Clarinet Choir, Jazz Band, Horn Quartet, or the Tuba/Euphonium Ensemble).
