The Camden Military Academy band got to experience something extremely exciting and amazing this past weekend. Justin Mabrey who is a longtime friend of our band director Robert Slade, paid a visit to our cadets on Saturday August 27th. Justin is a musician in the United States Army. He graduated from the University of Indiana with a bachelors and masters in music. He spoke with our cadets about the different styles of playing the trumpet and about hitting the high notes, which he does very well. A few of our students even got to play for him individually. Robert Slade made the comment, “Justin is a very versatile trumpet player and when he laid into the high notes I could see the student’s faces melting.”
