The Collinsville Crimson Cadets recently returned from a band performance in Colorado where both the Jazz band and Concert band received a Superior Rating. Along with the performance the Cadets had several fun filled days on the slopes. The students were GREAT and were a great representation of our town. A big thanks to Mr. Mackey and Mr. Simmons for planning this trip and a thanks to Mr. Early for holding down the fort while the other directors were gone. Thanks also to the parent chaperones. -- LeAnn Crabaugh 4/11/2017

THIS Saturday
There will be a send-off performance for "Resistance Indoor Percussion" Saturday April 15 (6pm) at the Collinsville Middle School. Collinsville band instructor Tyler Simmons and six Collinsville band students are part of this larger organization that is based right here in Collinsville. I don't know much about them other than they have practiced every week end (long hours both Saturday & Sunday) for months. I've heard wounderful sounds and seen interesting props shuffle between the band room and the gym. Can't wait to see the actual performance. -- Ted Wright
