End of the Year

We made it!!! It was an amazing year with many new and exciting things. 14 new members, the Cherry Street Beat, playing in the Horseshoe (again), OMEA successes, Jazz band, Chicago, and new uniforms. Next year looks to be even better and bigger!

But, we still have two weeks!

This Wednesday will be the final Booster meeting at 7 pm in the PAC. We will discuss fall events and marching band at this meeting. We have graduation on Sunday, May 22nd. Call is 4:30 pm in the PAC, concert black. Finally, we have the Memorial Day parade on Saturday, May 28th.

Lastly, the dates for band camp. More information will be mailed and posted over the summer.

Updates!

Due to the generosity of Dorothy MacKenzie Price, the CCHS band and orchestra were able to play side-by-side with the Toledo Symphony today. It was a fantastic concert and the culmination of a year long partnership. We look forward to continuing it for next year.
