Oh My the weekend that everyone has been talking about since Band Camp is finally upon us. We have three major events ( Fall Car Show, Home Football Game / Senior Night, and Keystone Competition) this week which means we have lots of Volunteer opportunities for everyone.

Spring Band Concert

This Thursday evening, May 2, 2019, our students will present our annual Spring Band concert in McGowan’s Barr Auditorium. The concert begins at 7:30PM, is free and open to the public.  All are invited to attend!

Immediately preceding the concert at 6:45PM, the CHS Band Boosters will conduct their annual spring business meeting in the high school cafeteria.  The time and location have been changed for this year to make it possible for more people to access the meeting and vote in the annual booster officer elections.  Please join us for this brief meeting when you bring your student for the concert.

We look forward to seeing you Thursday evening!

 

You are invited!

Coming up soon is the Memorial Day Parade and you are invited to join us!

The Memorial Day Parade is Monday, May 27, 2019 with a kickoff at 9 am. We would love to have alumni, parents and friends of the band join the CHS Bands as well as the Carlisle Middle School Band for this event!  More information, including uniform information, printable music, rehearsal times, and commonly asked questions can be found on the Memorial Day Parade page. Contact Mr. Mikesell with any additional questions.

Keystone Invitational

It was an incredible night for our band competition and our band had their best show by far this season with a score of 80.80! WAY TO GO CARLISLE!

View scores and recaps here. Video from the show can be found in our Members Only section.

A special thanks to each and every volunteer who helped to make our show such a success. Whether it was donating food or donating your time – we couldn’t have had such an amazing show without your help. THANK YOU!

Weekend Updates

If you are available at all on Saturday, we ask that you please consider signing up to help at the car show. We are in desperate need of help for both Saturday shifts! Students can also help during the first shift as practice is not starting until noon. Sign Up Here

If you are not able to help at the car show Saturday (this is our first priority) we are going to be starting with setup at noon for anyone who can come out and help. This is a change to the original schedule, so if you aren’t available, just come out and help when/if you can. Send an email if you have any questions. keystone@carlislehighschoolband.org

There are a few food items that still need to be donated. One is cases of water, which was just added to the list today. Please consider donating. Sign Up Here

If you are helping during the band competition, you can park in the grass area along the road behind the home side concession stand. You will need to enter through the main ticket booth, as the gate near the concession stand will be locked. Make sure you have your wristband. (They can be picked up Thursday before or after practice.)
