CREEKVIEW BAND ANNOUNCEMENTS
Marching Band: If you were able to join us on our zoom meeting this past week or saw on social media, we have decided to preserve our current marching show (Troubled Waters) to use in application for Fall 2021. We are doing this to allow for our program to achieve the show at its intended and full potential without having to cut out important components through visual, costume, story board and adequate practice schedule. With that being said – we are incredibly excited and proud to announce our featured music for the 2020 fall titled : West Side Story! This is one of the most famous Musicals of all time and has amazing and very recognizable music – We are looking forward to sharing this music with our students and band community!
UPDATED SURVEY: Please fill out this quick survey to let us know which option you have selected so we can make plans for Marching spots and drill numbers.

PRIVATE LESSONS – will be a very important support system for our students, we ask and hope to have 95% or more enrollment in our lessons program to help advance our students proficiency and level of enjoyment in band! We’ve got about 6 months of deficiency to overcome. Together (class room instruction, virtual assignments, lesson study and parental support / encouragement) we will be able to bring our kids back up to speed. Lessons are an expense, but more importantly an INVESTMENT in your child and a strong support from parents to further promote their skill, musicianship and enjoyment.
*Scholarship assistance application available in the lessons contact page. This is due by Aug 21st - All requests will be reviewed by a scholarship committee and awarded on a need basis. LATE APPLICATIONS will not be accepted as funds will have been allocated. Awards available after Sep 8th. Questions? Email me – firstname.lastname@example.org

What is Color Guard?
Color Guard is a performance activity that involves dancing and spinning flags, rifles, and sabres. During the fall season, color guard performs with the marching band at football games, pep rallies, and local/national competitions. During the winter/spring seasons, color guard performs indoors, separate from the band at competitions both local and nationally. Please watch this short video HERE to see what we do.
Who can join?
ANY student that will attend CHS for the 2020-2021 school year. Boys and girls both welcome! No experience is necessary, we will teach you how to do it! Most of our members show up with zero experience, and we have a great staff that can teach anyone how to do it.
We are currently accepting members for the 2020-2021 school year! Please fill out this form for more information about tryouts and color guard in general. Even if you’re not quite sure yet, signing up is a great way to learn more about it and see if it’s something you’d enjoy!
