BAND CAMP AUGUST 3 - 14, 2015
Band camp begins on August 3 at 8:00 in the morning. Check back here each day for a report and any updated information. Check here on Monday for complete information on what to bring, what to wear, fees, etc.
UPDATED SCHEDULE AS OF 5/30/15 SYMPHONIC/MARCHING BAND PERFORMING SCHEDULE FOR 2015-16
We have made a change in the Tuesday night schedule to avoid conflicts with the Trinity teen camp. Also percussion practice will start at 6:00 this summer instead of 5:00. This should allow more people to actually be at the rehearsal on time. Check back often for additional updates.
UPGRADE THAT INSTRUMENT
At some point a student is limited by the quality of his instrument. A new instrument or music supplies would be a great gift anytime. Also make sure that any upgrades are quality name brand instruments. Cheap China, no-name imports, will not give you satisfactory results and are subject to numerous breakdowns and poor intonation. Ask Mr Cordell for suggestions or check with our friends at Music and Arts.
Handbooks are in the section to the left. Updates will be coming soon.

Overlapping sports policy
This is a reminder that sports (including marching band) that have overlapping seasons have a policy from the school that you cannot just drop one sport to go to another until the first sport is finished. Students wanting to do soccer, baseball, basketball, etc. should work carefully with your coach to come on days we do not have band practice or performances. Your first obligation is to the band as you are graded on this and many of you receive academic credit for it. Of course even for the Christmas concert, spring concerts and contests students are expected to give band priority as you do receive academic credit for your performances.
