Camp & Application Requirements

2020 Online Camp

  • Application requirements: Camp is for rising high school freshmen to graduating high school seniors. Cannon Music Camp seeks those students who have a strong sense of character and citizenship, along with superlative musical and scholar achievements. The camp does not wish to admit the student who is unable to act responsibly, follow directions, or accept constructive criticism.

  • Grade Level IV performance: Most students are level IV if they have completed courses, relevant skills and played for 1-2 years in their school band, orchestra or choir. Cannon Music Camp students should be able to read music and take a theory class.

Performance Quotas

Enrollment is limited to 228 campers with quotas for each performance area.

Waitlist- If a performance area is full, complete an application, and get on our waitlist.
