Good afternoon everyone,
I don’t have a lot to say right now other than THANK YOU for another wonderful season of the CV Marching Band! To the students for working so hard all year, to the staff for working with our students and improving their skill sets, to the parents and other volunteers for all of their efforts in making sure we had what we needed when and where we needed it, THANK YOU! I’ll be more verbose when it comes time for the annual Band Banquet, not to worry! (Mr. Ainscough calls it my “flowery language” 😉)
A bit of business left to discuss, and that is the fact that BAND IS NOT OVER! 😊 The CV Bands also include 3 concert bands, 2 (or 3?!) Jazz Bands, 3 Winter Color Guards, and, this year, a winter developmental drum line. There’s still lots of band to do!
To that end, I must implore ALL of you to volunteer (when you see an email for it) for our annual winter guard & percussion showcase, Echoes in the Dome. This is an event which hosts different winter color guards and percussion ensembles competing, just like the marching band competes each fall in area football stadiums. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, February 1. This is our 2nd largest fundraiser of the year and the funds raised go to support THE ENTIRE BAND PROGRAM, not just winter guard. So, please plan on spending at least a LITTLE bit of your day that day here at CVHS.
Also, there’s a volunteer/donor pancake breakfast going on! Saturday, November 23, will see the inaugural CVBB Donor/Volunteer “Thank You” Pancake Breakfast! WE NEED STUDENTS TO VOLUNTEER TO SETUP, SERVE, AND CLEANUP! FOLLOW THIS LINK TO VOLUNTEER. Volunteers are needed from 7:30a-12p. The event will be hosted by the Good Hope Fire Station at 1200 Good Hope Rd.
As promised, there’s still LOTS of music-ing to do! See below for a run-down 😊
