Early Arrival Band Camp

Registration Instructions

Band Camp Registration is OPEN!

Band Camp is for all students and no auditions are required to participate! New students and upperclassmen alike will spend an intensive few days preparing performances for the new year and for New Student Orientation. Music is learned, lasting friendships are made, performances, tours, and other activities are planned for the academic year ahead.

For Incoming Students, Band Camp is a great opportunity to quickly get involved in college life. You will have the opportunity to meet and perform at the start of your Villanova career with other talented Villanovans. For many, this is a continuation of performing experiences from high school. For others, this may be an opportunity to explore or revisit an instrument or a love of music that was left behind years before.

Early-Arrival Details

The Villanova Band, including new students, is invited to arrive before New Student Orientaion.   Early arrival is to accomodate learning routines for Football season and playing at Orientation.  Move-in will be from noon-3pm on Tuesday, August 16th for all incoming students and any returning students that need to pickup a key.  Students will move into their regular dorm rooms for the year.  On move-in day, there will be a brief welcome & introductory meeting for new students & parents at 4pm, a light dinner at 4:30pm, followed by first rehearsals.   Parents are strongly encouraged to return for Parent Orientation on 8/20 if at all feasible.

The fee for Early-Arrival Band Camp is $50 per registrant, to help offset the cost of meals, which are provided for 3 full days.
