Band Camp Rocks!
Posted on April 16th, 2018
Band Camp 2018 was a blast! 82 students from 3 schools (MTS, St. Marguerite's (Innisfail) and Holy Trinity (Olds)) joined together on April 10th and 11th at Camp Caroline for another year of making wonderful music. We were joined by 6 professional musicians from Valleau Musical Services. Each student got 45 minutes to work with a professional instrumentalist on their specific instruments (percussionists got 3 full hours), then 45 minutes each with 3 different directors to put them through the paces on their festival music selections.Competition Calamity ensued when Miss. Klassen challenged the students to a breakout box activity. 16 teams of 5/6 teammates solved 5 musical puzzles to find the combinations to 5 locks allowing them to open 4 different boxes for a prize.In the evening, we rocked the stage with the 9th annual Band Camp idol. Talent included comedy, magicians, singers and piano solos.As we packed up our rooms and finished lunch, students begged the teachers to stay at camp forever! I think that means they had fun!Bring on Festival!
