Marching Band FAQs
Is Band Camp Mandatory?
Yes, because this is the foundation for all of our marching and playing technique for the season. Also, students wishing to earn the PE Credit option are required to participate in Band Camp as part of the deal.
Does it cost a lot of money?
No, especially not when compared to comparable programs in our area. Also, we have several fundraising opportunities early in the season, like our "One Day Fundraiser", so little (if any) money has to be "out of pocket".
What is Feste Del Mar?
Feste Del Mar is our home band review. We host bands who compete in parade, field show, concert and jazz events. This is also a huge fundraising opportunity for our band.
Do parents need to volunteer?
YES! We need a lot of parent help with all our events. We understand that many folks are working and enduring challenging situations that make volunteering difficult. We have many ways to volunteer and participate throughout the season. Remember, "Many hands make lite work".
What is a "Band Review" and what would I need to do?
Glad you asked! The short answer is a band review is a series of competitions in which our students participate including parade, field show, and concert events. For a much more detailed explanation, and to see some ways you can participate, go to the page "Band Review Details" on this website.
