PSU welcomes Cutting Edge Auxiliary Camp

It’s a treat for the eyes and ears this week as band students wash the Pittsburg State University campus with color and sound.

The 14th annual Cutting Edge Auxiliary Camp runs July 23-26 on the campus of PSU. The camp, designed for 7th-12th graders, offers training and instruction for flag corps, drum majors, percussionists, and section leaders. Approximately 330 students from 45 different school districts in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Missouri are signed up this year.

The camp begins each day at 9 a.m. and runs to 5 p.m. At 11 a.m. on Thursday, the students will converge for a performance in front of Russ Hall. The public is welcome to attend.

The camp is organized and led by Cutting Edge Executive Director Diana Williams. It runs in conjunction with the Brass Spectacular show, scheduled for 8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 25 at PSU’s Carnie Smith Stadium.

For more information about the Cutting Edge Auxiliary Camp, contact Williams at 417-438-1914. For details or ticket information on the Brass Spectacular performance, call Doug Whitten, PSU director of athletic bands, at 620-235-4070.
