Spring Tour Parent Meeting

Spring Tour Parent Approval Meeting
November 30th
6:30 p.m.
Band room

All CHHS band members and percussionists (grades 10-12) are invited to go on tour this year!  We will be heading down to Anaheim to have a bit of Disney fun!  Our group has been approved to play on one of the Disney stages and we will be doing a fun soundtrack workshop, which will teach the kids about the world of professional sound studio musicians.

Please send at least one parent from each family.  Even if you know your child isn't going on tour, please come and give approval so the rest of the kids can go!

Hope to see you there!

Marching...University Style!

Every year, our students are given an opportunity to march with one of the major colleges in Utah for a game day.  It's a great way to introduce your child to the world of college music and the kids usually have a great time!  This is completely optional and all registration is done by the individual.  The information is here to make that process easier for you.  Please read everything carefully as you register!  A couple of the programs only allow Juniors and Seniors to participate.  Check the dates, too.  There are two events happening the same weekend.

Here are your choices:

Days of '47 Youth Parade

We made it to the last parade of the season!  The band enjoyed this parade and even joined with the other bands in the parade for a little jam session before everyone stepped off.  It was a great way to establish friendships with the other bands.
