Summer Rehearsal Schedule

Our summer rehearsal schedule has been posted online at

Rehearsals will run on Mondays and Thursdays from 2:00pm to 5:00pm throughout the summer. Also, make plans to be at our Full Band Camp on July 14-18 from 10:00am to 5:00pm on each day. We will be flying in clinicians from Oahu and California to help us get started on our field show.

For rehearsals, make sure you come prepared:
If you are a woodwind/brass player, make sure you have your mouthpiece, reeds, swabs and other playing supplies. I have some items for purchase, but in limited quantities.
Constantly hydrate (drink water)
Eat (good food, not sugar and caffeine)
Shorts (girls must wear shorts over your leggings)
Athletic shoes (no skate shoes or slip-ons)
Water jug
