Raider Band Weekly Update Nov 19 - Nov 30

Raider Band Students and Parents,

What a well-earned Thanksgiving Break! Safe travels and best wishes to all of you as we head into the holidays!

Here come playoffs! We’re excited to cheer on our fellow Raiders as we take on Langham Creek tonight!

Just because we’re done with our competitive marching season doesn’t mean there’s nothing happening - check it out!:

Concert Tuxes and Dresses

Please keep these concert uniforms at home. Do NOT wash tux coats, tux pants, or dresses! Also, all temporary alterations need to be made in time for the holiday concert on Thursday 12/13. Thank you!

Spring 2019 Auditions, Percussion Tuesday 11/27, Brass/WW: Thursday 11/29 and Friday 11/30

All woodwind and brass students received audition materials last week. Part of the audition packet was a general overview, explanation, and information sheet in regards to the different bands and audition process. I’m attaching that information sheet to this email as well for your general knowledge.

Region Band Auditions

We’ve been enrolling students who wish to audition for region band the past few days during class. Entry fee is $20, made out to CRHS Band or cash, due Friday 11/30 to band safe in the band hall. Region Auditions are at CRHS on Friday 12/7 and Saturday 12/8.

Raider Band Holiday Concert, Thursday December 13th, CRHS Auditorium

It’s been on the band calendar, but just in case you didn’t already know, please be sure to mark your calendars.

Coupon Book Fundraiser

Students received ‘demo books’ on Thursday. These books are to be used to show to potential buyers - do not sell the demo books please. I’m asking each student to have a goal of selling at least five books. Any checks should be made out to CRHS Band. This fundraiser benefits the entire band, not individual Charms accounts. Students are able to earn a free book for every five sold, as well as a Tshirt, Long-Sleeve shirt, or Hoodie, depending on the number of books they sell. Order forms are due back by Friday 11/30. I’m attaching an info sheet to this email as well.
