Band Camp is approaching!

The mandatory Band Camp Meeting for parents and students is Saturday, July 14.  New members and anyone needing to buy/try on new shoes and gloves should come at 8 am (items can be purchased on our online store – look for shoes, gloves) – but you should definitely try on the items to get the correct sizes as they may be different than your regular shoe size.  The general meeting for all members is at 9 am and typically goes until 11 am.  Here’s the PowerPoint presented at the meeting.

The second $400 payment for Marching Band (all members) is due on this date.  You can pay online here or bring a check to the meeting made payable to “Corona del Sol Band Boosters.”

As you prepare for camp – please look at the PACKING LIST (page 5) prior to the meeting, as there may be some items you need to get soon (like a folding music stand or a binder).

Our daily BAND CAMP SCHEDULE is here!  Please print off a copy to include in your Binder for Band Camp!

2018 Marching Band Show – “A Thousand Cranes”

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?

To help make the wish come true, you can Sponsor a Crane or more with your wish.   You can also help keep the heart beat of the wish alive by sponsoring our Taiko Drums

**All sponsors and their wishes will be published on our website**

Band Camp Wish List

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 kathyaskinsaz@gmail.com to make the arrangements. 

Our wishlist is SignUpGenius.
