Mandarins Leadership Camp Returns For 2018

| |

Mandarins Leadership Camp had a successful inaugural 2017 camp of nearly 30 student leaders, and the 2018 camp will be looking to expand its reach to 50 students. Mandarins Leadership Camp is a two-day, overnight summer camp for high school student leaders, with the goal of enabling student leaders to effectively support their band director’s vision and goals. With an emphasis on being a leadership camp and not just a drum major camp, Mandarins Leadership Camp is unique from other camps by including wind and percussion section leaders and guard Captains as well as drum majors. Another unique feature from other camps is that student leaders will be taught on campus where the Sacramento Mandarins Drum and Bugle Corps will be rehearsing AND competing. Students will “eat, meet and greet” with the Mandarins, and experience drum corps life without the travel. A highlight of last year’s camp had students conducting the Mandarins brass line! The camp will conclude with a ticket to the DCI Capital Classic drum corps show that the Mandarins host, so students can see a performance of the Mandarins and many other drum corps in competition.
