CDS Marching Band Invitational!


Update: Thanks to all the parents and students who made this event such a great success!

The CDS Invitational will take place on Monday, September 18th. Admission is $5 at the gate, and the event will start at 6:30PM. Come check out the following bands (in performance order): Marcos de Niza, Mesquite, Centennial, Basha, Chandler, Mountain Ridge, Desert Vista, and Corona del Sol!

Sharp Dressed Band


Thank you to everyone who helped outfit the band. Tireless Uniform Managers: Jesse, Lienna, Alex, Brian, Emma, Gema, Hannah, Jacob, Kaelyn, Natalie, Maddie, Malea, and Mayu. Alterations Angels: Jill Burkis, Carolyn Cavanaugh Toft, Fawn Clark, Rose Ghosh, Susan Gus, Diane Johnson, Charlotte Mester, and Pam Sitz who hemmed and repaired 32 uniforms. Thanks also to Wendy Summers' Uniform Check-In team! The uniform room needs black sock donations. They don't have to be new, or even matching, just clean. Thanks bunches! – Fran Pote, Marching Uniform Chair.

First Assignment for Concert Bands!


If you are a member of one of the concert bands -- Wind Ensemble (6th hour), Symphonic Band (1st hour), or Concert Band (2nd or 7th hour) -- please read the Concert Band Handbook and then fill out this online CDS Bands Information Form as soon as possible. Note: If you are a marching band member, you do not need to fill out this form (since you already filled it out before band camp).

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.
