Update: THANK YOU to all our Invitational chairpeople and army of parent and student volunteers who made our Invitational a HUGE success! It was a truly special day and we appreciate everyone who gave their time to help run a FIRST CLASS event.

Marching Band Event Schedules

Please remember our Band goal of “Perfect Attendance” – we need all students at all events to be successful! Please plan accordingly with the following schedules.

  • Judging Sheets can be found here – see what your band is being adjudicated on!
  • Need to drive your student to or from an away football game or marching band competition (i.e. – not taking bus to or from an event)? Parents ONLY can drive their student to/from an event in a private vehicle. Here’s the NEW FORM – please download/fill out/email back to Mr. DuPlessis at dduplessis@tempeunion.org at least one week prior to the event. Forms turned in the day of the event will not be accepted.

Yes – The Holidays are near. Get your Poinsettias now!

Every year the boosters use Poinsettias to decorate the front of the stage for the Holiday Concert which will be held on Thursday, December 12th.  Plants are purchased by band families and friends which take them home after the concert.  The red plants have a foil bottom wrapping and are 6” in size.  Plants are $11 each.

This is an individual fundraiser which means the profit goes into the individual student’s account.  Accounts are used to pay for audition or winterguard fees, future band trips or band camp.  Fundraiser available to all band members, percussion students and guard members.  Students will make $4 per plant.

You can purchase them now by using this order form.

Percussion Concert!

The percussion concert is on October 22nd in the CdS auditorium @ 7pm.  Advanced tickets are now on sale at the online bookstore portal until October 17th!  After that you can purchase tickets at the door the evening of the concert.  Tickets are $5 and are assigned in the order they are received.  The Fall Percussion Concert will feature our Percussion Classes, Guitar Classes, World Music Classes and our famous Orange Man Group.  This concert usually sells out! To purchase tickets:Go to the online portal (copy link into your browser)
