All-State Music Camp for Young Band Members

In keeping with Board of Regents policy, being mindful of CDC recommendations relating to social distancing and large gatherings, and in support of continuing campus and statewide efforts to reduce and slow the spread of COVID-19 and the related pandemic, the 52nd All State Music camp and its associated activities, including the All-State String Camp and All-State Music Camp for Young Band Members, have been postponed until June of 2021.

The All State Music Camp has been a fixture of summertime on the SDSU Campus for over half a century and the faculty of the School of Performing Arts look forward to these events each summer. We will miss making music, meeting new friends, and serving ice cream this year. Rest assured that ASMC will return in 2021 to once again serve as a musical and social hub for students from around the region. Take care, and we look forward to seeing you then.
