Marching Band DVD/Blu-ray

2/23/2015

The Marching Band DVD/Blu-ray for the 2014-2015 season is coming soon! For paid Band Booster members, a DVD is included with your membership. If you paid your dues and want a DVD, then no action is required on your part. The video quality on the Blu-ray disk is far superior to the DVD, however, so if you have a Blu-ray player we highly recommended that you choose Blu-ray over DVD. The DVD includes the following material: Main Feature (multi-camera version of the Parent Performance, photo slideshow, and interviews), Montage (a progression of the show from Band Camp through Super State), Band Camp Concert, Seniors, and additional show performances from throughout the season. Due to the larger data capacity of Blu-ray, the Blu-ray has everything included on the DVD plus some additional show performances. If you did not pay membership dues, then your first disk (either format) is $30 and additional disks are $15. Orders are due by Friday, Feb. 27, and disks will be delivered in late March. Please see our online order form.


CDS XLIX


2/1/2015

Congratulations to all the CDS students who took part in Super Bowl half-time activities! We had about 160 kids from the Corona band and percussion programs dancing along with Katy Perry, while 55 students from the steel drum band played outside the stadium. Thanks to all the chaperones who helped us out throughout the past two weeks, and of course thanks to all the supportive families who accommodated our long rehearsal hours!






Join a Steel Band!

updated 12/15/2014

Corona del Sol Youth Steel Band
The Youth Steel Band is for middle school students who are involved in music programs at their school. We have four rehearsals and perform at the Corona del Sol Spring Percussion Concert. Learn the music of the islands on authentic steel drums! The sign-up form is available here.

Adult Steel Band
We're also looking for fun (but not necessarily musically talented) adults to join the Corona del Sol Adult Steel Band. With this event, owning a Hawaiian shirt is more important than having a sense of rhythm. If you're interested, you can find the sign-up form (including rehearsal schedule) here.
