Sunday Night: Student Orientation
Our first night is a group orientation lead by our Deans. We review what is expected of our students over the week as well as a reminder on rules and regulations. After which students have time to settle into their cabins, get to know their bunk mates and counselor(s).
Monday Night: Meet the Faculty & Staff
Monday night is open to interpretation. It changes from week to week based on our coaching staff. We've heard the history of the French Horn, learned how to make double reed instrument reeds. We've explored what happens when a string bass gets an extension and how it changes the instruments range, along with learning what keeps music exciting and a passion for coaches making a living in the performing and teaching industry right now. It's always an interesting program and one we are excited to compile each year
Tuesday Night: Games & Folk Dancing
Students come together for an evening of fun games and group folk dancing lead by their counselors and Deans. It's a great social setting where new friendships are fostered and community values are instilled.
Wednesday Night: Staff & Faculty Recital
This exciting evening is an opportunity for our students to see what their coaches are up to in their professional music careers. Solos and ensembles treat us to an evening of music that feature our coaches, faculty and the famous Wildwood Dixie Land Band.
Thursday Night: Student Solo Recital
We invite students to bring the music they've been working on at home and to talk with their coach about the possibility of being a part of this exciting recital. Make sure to bring the Piano part so that our resident Pianist can review it and schedule a rehearsal prior to the recital.
Friday Night: Student Skits & Social Dance
An evening of jokes, skits and dancing is an opportunity for our students to celebrate the accomplishments they've made over the week. Students let their hair down and "unwind" listening to contemporary music and sharing memories and highlights from their week with us.
Saturday Night: Chamber Concert
Our final evening at camp concludes with an all student chamber ensemble concert allowing small ensembles the opportunity to share with their fellow students the music they've been perfecting over the week outside of Band and Orchestra.
