2019 Cavalier Marching Band Applications Due Friday!
The 2019 Cavalier Marching Band will be celebrating the music of summer with a show entitled ‘Endless Summer.’ Bring a towel, catch a wave and join us in performing music from “Hawaii Five-0,” “Grease,” and the Beach Boys!
I’d like to invite you and your family to join us on this adventure. By joining Marching Band, you will join a family of friends who share a common interest. You will learn discipline, leadership, and excellence – all while having lots of fun!
The Cavalier Marching Band is open to all students currently in Grades 8 – 11 who will be attending South Carroll High School next fall. Even if you don’t play a wind or percussion instrument, you are encouraged participate in color guard or drumline.
The Marching Band will perform at all home football games – typically five or six throughout the fall season. Games are usually held on Friday evenings unless they are rescheduled due to inclement weather. We will also perform in several community parades and local marching band competitions. The schedule will be announced as soon as the dates are available from the community organizers.
Band Camp is our time to prepare our show so that every member will know their music and their positions on the field. There will also be fun, optional group activities every evening of Band Camp.
Mini Camp will take place at South Carroll HS on:
June 25 from 6PM – 6:30PM for all marching band students and parents (mandatory meeting – in SCH Auditorium)
June 25 from 6:30PM – 8PM for all students (following meeting – Band room)
June 26 and 27 from 6PM – 8PM for all students (Band room, chorus room, and auxiliary gym)
Full Camp will take place at Mt. Airy MS on:
August 1 and 2 from 9AM – Noon for winds (brass and woodwinds)
August 1 and 2 from 9AM – 3PM for percussion, drum major & color guard
August 5 – 9 from 8AM – 4PM for everyone
We will also rehearse on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6PM – 8PM beginning on August 13, 2019 and home football game days from 3 – 4:30PM. This schedule will last until the final home football game.
I hope you can join us! Applications are available outside of the HS Band Room and from Mr. Summers.
