Below are the packets that we sent home with students on the first day. If you need to print another set, the beginner one is first, and the advanced band one is next.
IMPORTANT: Please bring a binder to put your music in.
If you are new to Cedar Valley and going to be in one of the advanced bands, please be sure to attend camp.
This year summer band will be a happening on the following dates. While it is a mandatory event, we understand that vacations happen. It is mandatory if you are in town. If you will not be there for any reason, please email the band directors. All incoming Advanced Band members (those in Concert, Symphonic, or Honors Bands) are required to attend. Incoming Beginning Band members are not to attend.
Each day will be from 9 am to 12 pm. Students will be having sectionals to get back into playing shape and a full rehearsal with the entire band.
Tubas will be able to use a school instrument during the camp, and if you have a small tuba and would like to exchange it for the year, you can bring it in.
If you have any questions, you can email the band directors.
