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!
