(1st and 6th Hour Bands)
The 1st and 6th Hour Bands will be attending a Boston Brass Master Class field trip on Wednesday, January 18th during the school day. For more information on this amazing opportunity, please see detailed schedule
The Tempe Youth Band is an honor band hosted at Corona del Sol High School and is directed by David DuPlessis and Alex Holste, the band directors at Corona. They rehearse once a week starting in January and perform challenging music at a special concert in February. You will have the opportunity to play alongside the best musicians from Corona, who will serve as mentors and section leaders. You will also get to meet new friends from other middle schools and prepare yourself better for high school band!
Please fill out the online application form to apply for the Tempe Youth Band. The participation fee is $42 (payable online via our online store). Any 7th or 8th Grade student that is playing in their middle school band is eligible to join. We can only take a certain amount of instruments in each section to keep a good balance to the band. Please note that spots are available on a "first come, first served" basis, so send in your application and payment quickly before your section fills up! We will also check with your Middle School band director to make sure that you are ready for an honor band experience (in terms of classroom behavior and playing abilities). If for whatever reason you are not accepted, your payment will be refunded immediately. We hope to see you in January!
