Concert Band & Chamber Music

Based on the student’s preferences, every Hamp's Camper will participate in two different large ensembles, a chamber ensemble, and the Hamp’s Camp Ensemble. Each of these ensembles will be coached by our faculty and staff members. These ensembles can be from multiple concentrations — for example, a student could choose to perform in concert band, jazz ensemble, and an a cappella group — and our schedule is setup to accommodate a student with a variety of interests. If a pre-formed chamber ensemble plans to attend, please contact us via email about receiving a discount on camp tuition.

Winds, Brass and Percussion

The band program at the Lionel Hampton Music Camp offers instrumentalists the opportunity to play in daily rehearsals in which they will prepare a variety of repertoire, work with faculty members from the Lionel Hampton School of Music, participate in masterclasses and sectionals with studio professors, and give a final performance at the end of the week. 

Band and instrumental faculty at the University of Idaho will be leading the rehearsals, coaching chamber ensembles, and giving masterclasses. They include Alan Gemberling, Torrey Lawrence, Vanessa Sielert, Leonard Garrison, Vern Sielert, Sean Butterfield, Jason Johnston, Spencer Martin, Dan Bukvich, Javier Rodriguez, and Shawn Copeland. (Due to unavoidable schedule conflicts, Carol Padgham Albrecht (oboe) will not be present for the 2018 LHMC. Her substitute will be announced soon, but please contact us directly if you would like more information.)
