2014 CDS Marching Band Invitational


Update: Thanks to all the volunteers and (of course, the bands) that made the Invitational such a success! Check out Fox10's coverage just before the event.

The 2014 Corona del Sol Marching Band Invitational will take place Monday, September 29, starting at 6:30pm! Tickets are just $5, and the public is welcome. You'll enjoy a great line-up of bands, including Marcos de Niza, Maricopa, McClintock, O'Conner, Desert Vista, and your very own CDS Marching Band. We are still looking for a few volunteers to help out with certain tasks, so if you're interested, please see our online volunteer form.

Harkins Fundraiser


It's always movie time! Earn money for your student's band account by selling Harkins gift cards and loyalty cups! The gift cards will be sold for $25.00 each with $2.50 going to the student's account. Cups will be sold for $5 with $1 going to the student's account. Order forms with payment are due by Nov. 1 and can be turned in to Mr. Duplessis or Emily Manning. Items will be delivered before the winter break. A voucher will be given for each cup, which can be then traded at any Harkins theatre for the 2015 loyalty cup.



We had a number of parents volunteer through the "Pick your Pleasure" form that was distributed with the Band Camp packet. Thanks! Another way to volunteer is to indicate which events and/or support roles you might be interested in via this handy on-line form. A list of the myriad tasks and events that people typically help out with is available here.
