OSSBMB 2015 Band Camp August 2 - 7

Band Camp is a requirement of all members in the OSSB Marching Band, the ONLY Blind Marching Band in the World!!! OSSB students entering grades 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, or Senior Plus may see Ms. Johnson to gain entrance into the OSSB Marching Band. Students needing assistance with mobility will have a marching assistant who will guide them during show and in parades. There will be weekly sectional music rehearsals on Thursday evenings 3:45-4:45 and marching practices 5:30-7:30 p.m. Most performances are on Thursday nights. There will be one band weekend sometime in the fall where the band will perform in multiple locations.

A typical Band Camp Day includes:

We will conclude the camp with a performance of our new halftime show open to families and the public on Friday at 2:30 p.m. followed by an awards assembly and an exchange of information for parents and students.

All marching assistants must have BCI and FBI background checks within the past 2 years on file at OSSB. Volunteers interested in becoming a marching assistant should see Ms. Yolanda Johnson. Registration is open until the start of the first day of camp.
