                  Band Leadership Camp

  • Band Camp 2018 is a wrap, and it was truly an epic year for the Howard Payne Band Leadership Camp.

    I guess it’s fitting since it was the 45th annual installment!

    The entire week was truly great, and the final performances on Friday by the color guard, marching percussion, band member, squad leader, and drum major tracks were truly amazing! The camp jazz band concert on Thursday evening was one of the best, if not the best we’ve ever had!

    And, of course, the MEGABand truly was just that. With over 350 performers on the field, it was truly incredible!

    Mr. Jamie Weaver was exceptional in his teaching again this year, and the track meetings, sectionals, and full band rehearsals were just super! Along with the really cool swimming party it was quite a week!

    Most of the Photos we took during the week are now posted on the website here.  All of the performances will be up soon!

    We hope to see even more of you next year for the 46th annual HPU Band Leadership Camp on June 10-14, 2019.

    Registration will open on April 1, 2019, so register early.
