All District Band Auditions Postponed (again)

Update from the District Rep:

Due to many different factors – one being that are students that can’t get their instruments – the high school auditions will be postponed again to Saturday, January 13 at Colonial Forge HS.

This is also the same date for Middle School All District Band at AG Wright MS.  I hope that all time schedules will be the same but if anything changes I will let you know.

Marching Band – Spotsylvania Parade

Students should report to the music room at 10:00AM to get ready with uniforms and Santa hats!  Students will leave personal items at the school as we will return after our performance.

We will leave CHS to go to the parade at 10:30AM to make sure we get to the parade between 11 and 11:30AM.  Spotsylvania will close the roads at 12:45 and the parade starts promptly at 1PM.

We typically take about an hour to perform and get back on the bus. We will then report back to CHS hopefully around 2:30PM to put away equipment and dismiss.  We will send a remind 101 when we head back to the school so you can pick up students in a timely manner.

If students are decorating their instrument – they must do so BEFORE we leave for the parade.  Remember not to put anything on the instrument that will change the sound of the instrument.
