FROM MR. RHEN-I just received this from Mr. Milauskas, the band director at TU! WOAH!!!!

Dear Towson H.S. Band Students,

The Towson University Marching Band is fortunate to have interested donors who love to support our band! As we endeavor into our first summer camp for high school band students next week  from July 6th-9th, we have an anonymous donor who is offering 20 scholarships for free tuition to the camp worth $80 each – this offer is just for Towson H.S. Band Students! Both Towson band programs (HS and Univ) have a common supporter!

To take advantage of this generous offer:
  • Go onto the camp website and register for the camp. To receive the scholarship, all you need to do is put “Towson High School” when it’s asks what school you attend.
  • The scholarship is for tuition only. You’re welcome to bring your own lunch/dinner, or even go home for one or both of the meals. If you would like a commuter meal plan for lunches and dinners, that would be $70.
The deadline for the camp is midnight on June 30th (tomorrow)!  Here is the link to the camp website:


To contact us, email at tubands@towson.edu, or office phone at 410.704.5449

Peabody Bass Works Information

posted Apr 14, 2016, 11:31 AM by Towson High Music

“Greetings,

We at Peabody Bass Works are very excited to tell you about a unique opportunity for the bass players in your ensemble! We are delighted to welcome bassists of all ages, levels, and abilities to attend this extraordinary program that provides bass students with unique learning, community and performance opportunities on the grounds of Baltimore’s historic Peabody Institute. Now in its fifth year, Peabody Bass Works 2016 will present a diverse array of offerings for attendees in both the Four- and Seven-Day Divisions. All applicants who have taken at least one year of experience will be automatically accepted to either division.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in bass orchestra, chamber music, semi-private lessons, recitals, and more. A range of repertoire and curriculum ensures that students of all ability levels will both have fun and be challenged. Older students who are either already doing pre-professional work or who are considering musical careers will benefit from seminars and presentations on such topics as practicing, auditions, and careers in music. The week’s activities will culminate on the final afternoon with a thrilling concert that will feature all participants. The double bass is an instrument that is often overlooked in the string orchestra family, but at Peabody Bass Works, it takes center stage!

Bass players of any experience level should apply and seek more information at this website:
