2015 CDS Marching Band Invitational


The 2015 Corona del Sol Marching Band Invitational will take place on October 17th! This year's event will be an official ABODA competition, so we may be hosting more than twenty bands. Not surprisingly, we will need quite a few volunteers (on the order of 200). A performance schedule is available here. More information regarding call-time, etc. will be provided when that info becomes available. In the meantime, if you are able to help out, please visit our online volunteer form. There is also a sign-up for Middle School and High School kids available here.

As with past invitationals, we are selling ad space within the program for the event. If you know of any local establishments that might be interested, or if you want to enter a personal ad for a student or instrumental section, please see the Ad Form. The deadline to submit an advertisement is Wednesday, September 30th.

Poinsettia Fundraiser


We know that it is only September, but we're happy to announce that our annual Poinsettia Fundraiser is in progress. These beautiful, red poinsettias are $11 each, with a significant percentage of sales going to your student's band account. Pre-order today! The due date for payment is October 26th, and the poinsettias will be available for pick-up on December 9th after the Holiday Concert. For more information, please see the order form.

Harkins Fundraiser


It's always movie time! Earn money for your student's band account by selling Harkins gift cards and loyalty cups! The gift cards will be sold for $25.00 each with $2.50 going to the student's account. Cups will be sold for $5.25 each with $1.00 going to the student's account. Order forms with payment are due by Nov. 20th and can be turned in to Mr. DuPlessis or Emily Manning. Items can be picked up at the December 9th Holiday Concert. A voucher will be given for each cup, which can be then traded at any Harkins theatre for the 2016 loyalty cup.
