Music Camp 2022

Diana Springford – Head of Music

Music Camp
Monday 20 June 2022 – Thursday 23 June 2022

Bookings for Music Camp have now closed and our participants list is finalised with a record number of 205 students attending. Last week, a very important email entitled ‘IMPORTANT: Special Diet Request Survey for ALL music campers’ was ‘broadcast’ by the venue on Thursday 19 May 2022, to the email address of the parent who completed our online booking form, for each child who is registered for camp. The email contained a link to a survey requiring you to respond confirming whether or not your child needs a special diet. Your response will directly inform the venue of those dietary needs and is the parents’ responsibility to complete within the deadline. A very detailed explanation of the special diet options and process was in the cover email. Most parents have already completed and submitted their response – thank you. If you are concerned that you didn’t receive it, please check your junk mail and if you cannot find it, email jdearaujo@emanuelschool.nsw.edu.

A detailed packing list was sent to parents of attendees on Tuesday.  

For parents who opted to pay by instalments, you are reminded that the second (final) instalment is due by Friday 3 June 2022. A reminder email with the link to our Humanitix site for payment has been emailed.

Parents and carers, please remember to put the Music Camp Showcase Concert in your diary for Thursday 23 June 2022, from 6.15 pm – 8.00 pm. Please note that as we have such a large group of campers who will be performing in the concert, we will need to limit the audience to two persons per student. We will video the performance and make that available afterwards to the parents and carers of performers.

Show off your secret, or not so secret, talent at the Music Camp Student Concert on Tuesday evening during camp. Students who wish to participate should have a well-prepared act that is appropriate for Music Camp students from ages 9 – 18. It could be serious or funny. Mr Burley will be looking for a variety of items, from both Emanuel School and Mount Sinai College students from Years 4-12.  Students who would like to participate should register their interest at this link with Mr Burley by Friday 10 June 2022. Not everyone who fills out a form is guaranteed a spot, as we have lots of students (but there is no chance of being in the concert if you don’t submit your form.) You can only submit one entry. If using a backing track, you would need to have it fully downloaded and email it to Mr Burley – once he has notified you that your item has been selected. You would also need to bring whatever gear you require to camp.
