Band Council 2018-2019 (first meeting Monday after school – 11:30am)
How exciting! Our 2018 Aztec Marching Band show is titled “A Thousand Cranes” with music feature from a collection of Japanese pieces. View the show video theme by clicking here.
1000 Cranes are a symbol of peace, health, prosperity and mythical wisdom. It is asserted that everyone has his own hopes and wishes. According to Japanese tradition, 1000 Paper Cranes (also referred to as Senbazuru) can help people to cherish their wishes and make them become true.
A person who folds 1000 Origami Cranes will be granted a chance to make one significant wish.
What will YOU wish for?
**All sponsors and their wishes will be published on our website**
The Band Camp snack shelves are a little bare. The students work very long hours during band camp, a snack or two between meals and during breaks are great pick-me-ups to keep them going. The oops & ouch drawers (we know those moments happen) need some replenishment too.
We are accepting donations during each of the summer rehearsals. They can be placed in the band room. Also Kathy Askins is accepting donations at her home – contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org to make the arrangements.
Our wishlist is SignUpGenius.

The MEF/ASU Summer Band Camp is back this summer – and a great opportunity for you to keep playing your instrument with other great musicians for a week in the summer on the ASU Campus. Musicians will get to perform in one of three honor bands, participate in master classes with ASU music professors/Phoenix Symphony musicians, participate in music electives, play in small chamber ensembles, and have the opportunity to serve as mentor to younger musicians in the Student Leadership Team. Mr. DuPlessis conducts one of the concert bands, and Mr. Jason Caslor (band director at ASU) will direct a new elite wind ensemble band this summer. Also new this summer, the final concert will be in the world-famous GAMMAGE AUDITORIUM. We highly recommend this camp – more information can be found at their website.
