What’s BANDEMONIUM? We know you can play an instrument. Yes, you can sing. You’ve got the moves. But are you entertaining? Can you perform? Captivate and hold an audience? Command the stage? Look and sound professional?

For young musicians age 12 - 18 (exceptions may be granted)

If you play an instrument, sing, dance, and want to improve your stage presence and performance skills: BANDEMONIUM will be a great experience for you.

Come along. Join a band, choose a tune, practice and hone it to perfection.

Learn important stage and performance skills from our faculty, some of the most sought-after professional artists in the country.

Perform at our Saturday night All-Star Concert - starring your band AND our amazing faculty.

How much is it? The registration fee is $155. Lunch and supper is included, plus a ticket to the concert.

Oh, and a special, limited-edition t-shirt!
