A scholarship from a Chicago Civic Orchestra granted Camphouse the chance to study trumpet privately for two years with the renowned Chicago Symphony Principal, Adolph Herseth. Camphouse was only 17 when conducted his first symphony. From then on, he served as a conductor, and a lecturer in 39 states. Also, his work has lead him to travel Canada and Europe.
Currently, Mark Camphouse is an elected member of the American Bandmasters Association and he also is a coordinator of the National Band Association Young Composer Mentor Project. While he still composes music, Camphouse is now a Professor of Music and Director of Bands at Radford University in Virginia. He has been a professor there since 1984. Read more on Last.fm.
