SUMMER REHEARSALS

To prepare for the start of football season, there are several full-ensemble rehearsals in addition to band camp. Attendance for these Saturday rehearsals are mandatory for anyone in New Jersey when they occur. Excuses will be made for out-of-state students as well as travel. While it is very important for these summer rehearsals to be well-attended and productive, we understand that inevitable conflicts occur. If you are unable to come to one or more of these rehearsals due to circumstances out of your control, you are still able to join the band.

BAND CAMP

Band camp is the most important part of our preseason preparation. In late August, the entire band travels to Camp Lake Greeley in Greeley, Pennsylvania from Lucy Stone Hall by bus, where we will return before our first game day. At band camp, we will learn both our traditional pregame show as well as our first halftime performance. While rehearsals take up most of the day, band camp is always a fun, memorable experience where many long lasting friendships are made. Mu Beta Psi, the honorary music fraternity at Rutgers, typically plans fun events for the evenings, such as a talent show and dodge ball.

 

As band camp approaches, more information will be sent out regarding times, what to bring, and early move-in when we return. Please feel free to contact us will any questions you may have.
