This exciting, yet demanding, nine-day program gives high school musicians the opportunity for musical development through intensive group and individualized instruction provided by qualified staff and professional musicians. All academy members will participate in concert band, instrument sectionals and small ensembles daily. Students may also audition for jazz band. Academy members will enjoy free concerts performed by professional musicians and nonmusical recreational activities.
The Southern Maine Music Academy (SoMMA) has an established reputation as one of New England's premier summer instrumental music camps.
Applicants should play one of the following instruments:
| clarinet / bass clarinet
|trumpet||baritone / euphonium|

* Guitarists, bassists, and pianists should also play a wind or percussion instrument. Guitar, bass, and piano players are needed in the Jazz Band portion of the Academy and auditions will be held for those instruments.
