Kamp Ensemble Coordinator

The Kamp Ensemble - Totally Random Students put together early in the week in order to perform a song at the end of the week.

Three rehearsal times.

A great reason to do this is to meet people you would not have met early in the week so your new friendships and jamming can get started.

Many folks don't meet friends until they loosen up at the end of the week. This gets it all started early and it's fun too!
Instructor Led.
