Its hard to believe this, but planning has been underway for the 2015 Conant Marching Band Season.
The 2015 Marching Band Calendar is now available for viewing. Take note that due to the later than normal start of the school year, full marching band camp will coincide with the same week of the start of IHSA sporting activities (nearly identical to the 2014 schedule with the exception of the start of school). Full marching band camp will be August 10-14, 2015.
For this year only there will be an entire week between marching band camp and the week that school begins (school begins on Wednesday, 8/26/15). To view the full 2015 Conant Marching Band schedule of events, including all marching band camps, rehearsals and performances, please click here.
We believe that keeping camp in the same week as the start of IHSA sporting activities will minimize the conflicts for those students who participate in marching band and in Conant Athletics. Our preseason (marching band camp) needs those critical 5 days for the marching band to learn, drill and perfect its performance for the entire season. With the exception of the once-a-week extracurricular rehearsals to fix and maintain, these 5 days represent nearly 35 hours of material to be learned. This schedule will allow for the Conant Marching Band to continue its tradition while minimizing the impact on other areas that students are involved. Likewise, with the transition to the collegiate-style calendar for the 2016-17 school year, keeping camp at this time will help to prepare for an even earlier start of marching band camp that following year. For now, we will take one year at a time.
Our show for the 2015 season is the music of Billy Joel.
An information packet will be mailed to all band students detailing marching and concert band uniform requirements and including an order form. Details and the order form are also available here on the Conant Band website under 2015-16 Uniform Information.
