Notes for the Week of January 21st

Volunteers Needed for the San Joaquin Valley Color Guard and Percussion Review (SJVCGPR)

Volunteers are needed for the SJVCGPR this Saturday, January 26th. Duties include monitoring the entrance for performers and audience, merchandise sales and ticket sales. This is a terrific way to experience the percussion talent of the SJ Valley, while financially helping our program. Click here to sign up:


Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Orchestra audition results are posted on the office door. The first rehearsal is this Friday, February 1st from 3pm – 5pm. Rehearsal will begin with Smetana and end with Beethoven.


Color Guard and Winter Percussion Competition at Clovis East

Both Color Guards and Winter Percussion will be performing in the SJVCGPR event this Saturday, January 26th at Clovis East High School. The cost is $10 for Adults and $8 for Students. The cost of admission will get you in both gyms to see all three ensembles perform. Make sure you get there early to park and get a good seat, because doors close during performances. (Ensemble members see Charms calendar for itinerary and details)

Performance times are the following:

A Guard 12:52pm

World Percussion 2:27pm

Open Guard 2:41pm


Pep Rally This Friday

There is a pep rally this Friday morning. Marching Band students need to wear their Instrumental Music shirts for the event. They also need to refamiliarize themselves with the fight song and pep tunes.


See’s Candy Fundraiser

The See’s Candy Fundraiser begins today. Students will receive 50% of the proceeds to apply to their upcoming trips such as the Homestead Orchestra Festival or the Delta College Band and Orchestra Festival. There is a quick turn around so that we can get the candy before Valentine’s day. Orders are due next week on Thursday, January 31st. The candy will be delivered on Friday, February 8th.


Old Marching Uniforms/Storage Organization

We are selling the old red and black uniforms this spring. They have been in storage the past four years and need to be retrieved, refreshed and itemized. Since they are in the back of the storage container, we need parents and student volunteers to move items in the front and reload the container after we are done. We also need parents to inspect and organize the uniforms for sale. We will meet on February 2nd at 2pm. Click here to sign up:


Chamber Orchestra

The Chamber Orchestra will be traveling to the Homestead Orchestra Festival at Homestead High School on Thursday, February 7th. We will depart at 10am from Clovis West and return around 10:45pm. Performance time is 3:25pm. (Ensemble members see Charms calendar for itinerary and details). String Orchestra will not be attending this trip.
