Audition and Experience Camp FAQs

Revised: September 2018


This is a stay-over camp at Diamond Bar High School, 21400 Pathfinder Rd, Diamond Bar, CA (see housing information below). Arrive by 8am on Saturday for check-in. The corps will provide all meals (lunch, dinner, snack on Saturday; breakfast and lunch on Sunday). The camp ends at 6pm on Sunday.

If you’re arriving late due to a school performance, SAT/ACT, honor band auditions, etc., please let us know by sending an email to Chris Henderson at

Instructors will teach and evaluate you in small sessions and large sessions throughout the weekend. You will also have an opportunity to audition individually.

Due to the number of students expected, you should plan to bring an instrument — your own or one borrowed from your school.
