Tips: Bring money for lunch or bring a sack lunch each day. Wear light color clothing, sunglasses, sunscreen, athletic shoes, and bring a refillable water bottle with you name on it. Bring a lyre and a flip folder from The Music Shop. If you don't have one yet, don't worry, we may have hand-me-downs to give you. You will not need a lyre and flip folder until the 24th. We recommend flute lyres for sousas and baritones, bell lyres for bell front brass, and all others should know the name brand of your instrument to find one that fits.

Please contact the directors if you have any questions.
