JULY 10 | 9AM-7:30PM | HOUSTON, TX
The TLBA Low Brass Day is a 1 day intensive summer day camp event located in Houston, TX at Oak Ridge High School taking the place of our usual week-long Summer Camp for 2021. Euphonium, trombone, and tuba students grades 6-12 and early college music majors will have the opportunity to study with, listen to, and perform with our esteemed guest artists and faculty, attend guest artist recitals and masterclasses, play in chamber groups, meet new friends from around the state, and much more! All activities will be under COVID-19 guidelines and regulations to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff members.
As the COVID-19 pandemic is changing and evolving each month, we will make every effort to create an inspirational experience for each participant and our staff. However, circumstances and guidelines may change and the Texas Low Brass Academy will adjust as needed. Alternative plans, schedules, and artists may be necessary due to situations beyond our control. Full refunds will be offered in the case the event is cancelled.
