Marching Band Camps are planned to kick-off on July 20. Percussion and Guard camps are tentative, but are planned for the following:
July 20-21: Leadership Camps
July 22-24: Percussion, Color Guard, and 1st year marcher camps
July 27-31: All Marching Band members
August: Rehearsals prior to start of school-Monday/Wednesday/Friday rehearsal 3-6pm
August Sectionals-Tuesdays or Thursdays TBA (schedule based on sections-students will only have 1 per week)
Fall school rehearsals-Mondays and Wednesdays 3-6pm, sectionals TBD
Attending all of band camp is mandatory for full participation in marching band. Students learn upwards to 1/3 of what they will learn throughout season and due to the nature of moving forward, there will not be time available to catch students up within the ensemble rehearsals. Conflicts will result in students becoming alternates or switching to Concert Band.
More information about late April and May spring training, as well as summer practices will be coming up in the next few weeks. We do plan to have at least 1 training day per week in May. We will also have some music rehearsals in June and July. We will work with excusing families that are not in town during the summer sessions as long as this communicated in advance.
