Band camp in August is crucial for all members of the the UMass Lowell Marching Band. We hold a brief camp at which three-quarters of the show, both visual and music, is taught. With several early season performances, it is important that every member make every effort to be at camp (it is mandatory for freshmen / new students / transfers).
Our first performance is Monday August 31 Convocation (Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell) followed by rehearsals beginning Wednesday September 2 at 6:30 p.m in Durgin Concert Hall. Our next performance is Monday September 7, the Labor Day Parade in Marlboro, Massachusetts.
Check your email. Changes and details will be most accurate in materials sent out. However, for perspective, here is our general schedule:
All returning members should arrive at Concordia Hall at 8:30 a.m. All members will be housed in the dorms. The first meeting of all members will be held in the Durgin Concert Hall at 9:15 a.m. Please come prepared with instrument, small notebook, and pencil, as we will begin rehearsal shortly thereafter.
Band camp ends on Saturday at 3:30/4 p.m. Parents picking up students should meet at Durgin Hall, South Campus.
