The 2nd Annual 2008 Valley Summer Youth Band Camp was held at CHS this summer July 21 – July 30, 2008. Twenty-five students, 6th-11th grades participated from Linus Pauling Middle School, Cheldelin Middle School and North Albany Middle School.
The members rehearsed four days and then presented 3 concerts at the Riverfront Park, the Saturday Market and at Corvallis High School. The camp concluded with an evening of miniature golf. The music was well-received and band performed three excellent concerts.
A big THANK YOU to the Friends of CHS Band for sponsoring the band camp! A special thank you to Yuki Tanaka for designing this year’s colorful t-shirt. Next year the camp will be held July 20-July 29, 2009. The camp plans to attend and perform at the Benton County Fair next summer.
