2018-2019 Cambridge Band Information
Hello Cambridge Band Families!
We want to take a moment to review the 2018-19 Band Info Meeting held earlier this month, highlight important upcoming dates, and direct your attention to a few resources we hope will be helpful to you. This email may be a bit lengthy, but we appreciate your time and have tried to keep it as informative and brief as possible!
Cambridge Band Calendar: http:/href=/app/calendar
Tuesday & Wednesday, May 1st & 2nd - 4:30-6:30 - Cambridge Band Room
This is mandatory for all rising 9th graders who will be joining marching band. (Students who are still "on the fence" are welcome to attend to try it out!) The 2018-19 section leaders, captains, and drum majors should plan to attend!
Drumline Placement Auditions:
Tuesday, May 1 - 4:30-6:30 - Cambridge Band Room
Wednesday, May 2 - 4:30-7:00 - Cambridge Band Room
These are mandatory for those intending to play percussion in marching band - both battery (drums) and front ensemble (mallets/auxiliary). Everyone is able to be a member, but these "auditions" are necessary so we can place students on the appropriate instruments for the marching section.
Students must wear athletic clothing and tennis shoes, and should bring a water bottle and snack! They will be rehearsing both inside and outside. Students must be there for the entirety of both days to be eligible!
Colorguard "LAST CALL" Auditions:
Wednesday, May 2 - 4:30-6:30 - Cambridge Cafeteria
Anyone who was interested in colorguard, but was unable to make the April audition days - THIS IS YOUR CHANCE! Come audition - bring your friends!
All students who attended the April audition are required to come to this day as well! Students must wear athletic clothing and tennis shoes, and should bring a water bottle!
