BOA BLAST at Wake Forest

July 28, 2024
Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC
Presented by Yamaha

Music for All, Bands of America, and Wake Forest University are thrilled to announce BOA BLAST at Wake Forest, a one-day summer camp for students. BOA BLAST at Wake Forest will focus on increasing achievement in the marching arts for high school students, including brass, woodwinds, color guard, drum majors, and marching percussion – including front ensemble (see below for details). Leadership is a focus of the day for all. Students work with members and staff of Carolina Crown; wind players will perform a musical excerpt of the Carolina Crown production at the NightBEAT DCI Show.

Front ensemble students are welcome to attend if they provide their own mallet instrument and facilitate transportation for the instrument for the entire day. For questions about this, email
