Due to the increasing number of health concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19 and the fact that New Jersey has declared a state of emergency, The Cadets, in consultation with Youth Education in the Arts (YEA!) Board President, Doug Rutherford, and DCI Executive Director, Dan Acheson, has decided to cancel this weekend’s Brass Camp which was to be held in Salem, New Jersey.

Cadets Director, Denise Bonfiglio, stated that, “the health and welfare of students, staff, and volunteers was the main focus of this decision.”

The Cadets administrative team has made all students, staff, and volunteers aware of this cancellation, and are making arrangements to cancel or transfer all travel arrangements for those making the trip to and staying in New Jersey for this camp.

“We are monitoring this situation daily and consulting with medical professionals,” Bonfiglio went on to say. “We will be staying abreast of any changes and how the potential spread of COVID-19 could impact future events.”
