After the callbacks, if you are offered full membership in the SCV Brass or Percussion sections, you will be required to attend four Winter Rehearsal Camps. If you are in the color guard you will be required to attend one Winter Rehearsal Camp. Similar to our Weekend Clinic & Audition Camps, these are held one weekend each month and housing, transportation and food are all provided. Attendance at all Winter Rehearsal Camps is mandatory unless there is an approved school conflict.
