May Camp is required for all members of the band, new or returning. Students will learn marching fundamentals and music for the fall marching show, try on uniforms, and order supplies for the fall. We have designed this experience to prepare you for success throughout the fall season. Camp attendance determines how many spots we will write for the fall field show, it is important that you attend camp to be counted! Saturday will conclude with a short parent meeting at 3:00 PM, followed by a student performance.
Tuesday, May 17th from 3:30-4:30 PM, $10.
A physical exam is required for all marching band members. This is the same physical required for athletics. Crowley HS will offer physicals for students on Tuesday, May 17th for only $10. If you cannot attend, any doctor can perform your physical, but must use the provided form.
Every Tuesday in June and July, 6-8PM, CHS band hall
Come see your friends and make some music all summer long! Attend as many as you can. Learning the music early will give you a head start on the fall season and help us all be a better band.
