Allen ISD Summer Band & Orchestra Camp is open to any current 6th or 7th grade orchestra or band student. This is an excellent opportunity to grow as a young musician and make some great new friends. Students from outside Allen ISD are welcome to attend.
We will offer a 7th grade Orchestra, 7th grade Band, 8th grade Orchestra and 8th grade Band. Each ensemble will have a guest conductor and section leaders. Our conductors and section leaders are Orchestra & Band directors from the DFW area, Allen ISD, as well as private instructors. The sectional coaches will work with the students to prepare their music for the final concert and help them with their technique. They will also be learning an ensemble with their section that will perform on Friday morning before our final concert. The Camp has an administrative staff that will organize and coordinate all the events for the week.
