The Marching 100 Summer Band Camp has been in existence since 1990,
when we had less than 100 members. The majority of those in attendance
were from Burke HS (Charleston, SC), and William M. Raines HS
(Jacksonville, FL). Burke got the attendance award, and have been
getting that award every since!
The camp includes a variety of bands and ensembles, and will help you
to become a more well-rounded musician. While the Marching Band is the
crown jewel of the camp, there are also the 3 symphonic bands (Honor,
Orange, and Green), two Jazz Bands, a Percussion Ensemble, Keyboard and
Electronic Music, and an ensemble for every instrument.
The camp also includes drum majors, flags, majorettes, and dancing girls.
The camp students are taught by "Marching 100" members, and perform
not only for their parents, but for all of the FAMU and Tallahassee
residents at their symphonic concert, ensemble concert, parade, and the
final marching exhibition of Bragg Memorial Stadium, home of the Mighty
If you're interested in getting more information about the camp, feel free to send an email to the FAMU Music Dept.
The Alumni Band Association will be giving away camp scholarships and
sending information out to our distribution list. If you will fill out
the Interested Musicians Form
we will know who you are, and will be able to get information to you
about the performances of the Marching 100. We have given multiple
scholarships over the years, so if you want to be in that number, fill
