What is it?
Winter Camp is an annual required event and a part of the HHS band program. It is band camp….but for concert band. It’s our chance to prepare our spring music and become better musicians while having outstanding guest conductors and professional musicians on your instrument come in and work with you. It is a chance for you to learn more about your instrument and get instruction from professional musicians and collegiate level conductors. The rehearsals are long, but it will be worth it. We want you to get the most rehearsal time with the clinicians. You will be at school late on Thursday and you miss school on Friday. Plan ahead with these teachers!
Dinner - The Band Parents have arranged a meal for you on Thursday. You must stay on campus for dinner. so we don’t include you in our count. If you are not planning on eating this food, you need to bring food or have your parents deliver it to the school. You will eat your normal school lunch at 11:30 on Friday.
Thursday Dinner –Please click here to order your dinner from Jason's Deli:
Missing Class - Mr. King has excused you from class on Friday. All band members are expected to be at all rehearsals. You should treat this as a field trip. Let your teachers know in advance and get make up work or reschedule tests. We are paying lots of money to have these wonderful clinicians come in and help and we need you there!
Guest Clinicians Our guest conductors this year are Bobby Lambert and Lanie Radeckie. They are the band directors at Wando High School near Charleston, South Carolina. Their bands are Wando are among the best in the country. You may also remember Mr. Lambert from our leadership camp this summer.
Our local masterclass clinicians are:
Flute - Charles Page Trumpet - Dr. Joe Gray
Clarinet - John Cooper
French Horn - Mary Ellen Hovik
Saxophone - Nancy Hallman
Trombone - Bill Connell
Bassoon - Ben McClay
Euph/Tuba - Joel Mason
Oboe - Vickie Truesdail
Percussion - Zack Melton
At the end of the clinic, we will hold the Winter Camp Concert on Saturday at 12:00 pm. This is the first chance to perform our pieces that we are doing for MPA and other competitions. The guest conductor will conduct the concert. This is a “work in progress” concert! The concert should conclude this year about 1:00 pm, but we need help moving things back into the band room afterwards. The concert is free and parents/family are welcome to attend.
What to wear: Band Polo shirts tucked into pants (khakis, jeans, etc). If you don’t have a polo shirt, come talk to a director.

FAQ: Is it too late to sign up?
No. If you sign up late you will need to make sure and make all missed payments. Keep in mind we are now making decisions based on the current number of people going like rooming, music, and other things that are number dependent. If we reach bus capacity or run into a situation that would significantly impact the price or quality of the trip, we may have to close registration. If you sign up after we do rooming lists, we will do our best to accomodate however your options may be limited as to who you stay with. All trips must be paid for in full by February 21st (firm deadline for any adds!)
