students in band rehearsal

Stately Oaks & Junior Oaks Band Festival

February 3 – 5, 2022 // LSU Baton Rouge Campus

Stately Oaks and Junior Oaks are multi-day camps designed for high school (grades 9 – 12) and middle school (grades 7 and 8) band students. Students will participate in full band rehearsals with special guest conductors, receive a group masterclass on their instrument, and have the exciting opportunity to engage with one of the LSU concert ensembles in an interactive rehearsal. Camp participants will also attend the LSU Collage Concert, which features students and faculty of the LSU Department of Bands and LSU School of Music, and perform in a final concert of their own on Saturday afternoon, which will be free and open to the public.
