The band has completed the first two weeks of camp. While many of the days were hot and long, the students stayed hydrated, nourished, and rested, making the start of this camp one of the most successful yet. Director Paul Baur reported, "I can't remember a year where we felt this good about how we are playing this early in the season." He commented on the brass sound, the wood wind technique, the battery sophistication, and the frontline warmth. He closed saying, "I LOVE listening to you all play."
