We are incredibly excited to offer you a comprehensive week-long musical experience right here in our own Magic City. The week of fantastic music-making opportunities includes a full band experience, small ensemble participation, and training in music theory, literature, conducting, music technology, and jazz improvisation. In addition, students will have the opportunity to study privately with members of the UAB Music faculty and perform on a world-class stage. For complete information on the camp view brochure.
