All Summer Marching Camp participants will take part in a combined Finale Concert at the end of the weekend, open to parents and the Auburn community.  Participants will also have fun hanging out with their new friends during breaks, lodging in AU Residence Halls, and taking part in organized games and social activities during the evening hours.  Auburn University Summer Marching Band Camps are an experience you don’t want to miss!

Summer Symphonic Band Camp

High School Symphonic Band Camp - June 10 - 12, 2024

The Auburn University Bands holds Summer Symphonic Band Camps each year.  The High School Symphonic Band camp for rising 9th - 12th graders, provides an excellent opportunity for musical development during the summer.  Rehearsals with band students from across the southeast, as well as section rehearsals and master classes, will make this a great experience for your camper.

Throughout the camp participants will get to know their fellow campers while taking part in games and social activities, which make this a fun camp experience any band student would enjoy.  At the end of the camp the participants will perform in a Finale Concert for parents and the Auburn community.  We hope you take advantage of the one-of-a-kind experience you will have at Auburn University High School Symphonic Band Camp.
