Band Camp Concert

updated 7/19/2017

Update: Check out some of the photos that have been posted to our Facebook page, which will be updated throughout the week.

The Aztec Marching Band will be attending band camp until Saturday, July 22 at Pine Summit Camp in Prescott [map]. If you are interested in what the kids will be doing from day-to-day, please check out Mr. D's detailed schedule.

Just as a reminder, parents must pick up their marching band student (or arrange a ride for their student) on Saturday, since transportation is not provided back to Tempe. Please join us for the Camp BBQ from 11am-12pm if you've pre-purchased BBQ tickets, or bring your own lunch. The concert begins at 12:30pm. Please do not arrive earlier than 10:00am so that the students' morning activities are not disturbed. The camp is in the woods, so please bring chairs to use during the concert. To ensure that everyone can see the concert, there are only a few areas where canopies can be used. See you there!

Sponsor a Wave!


The 2017-2018 Marching Band Show is entitled "Above and Below," and will feature the music of Camille Saint-Saens and Modest Mussorgsky. Check out the show trailer. Also, if you would like to help us raise funds for show props, please consider sponsoring a wave!

New Band Parent Presentation


The excellent presentation that Jill Maurer put together for the New Band Parent Meeting (which took place on May 19th) is now available here (PDF, 3MB). We recommend that you make room for this on your Summer Reading List, particularly if you are new to the CDS Band program.
