Collinsville High School Summer Band
Dear Collinsville Crimson Cadets,

We hope you’ve had a fantastic summer so far. It’s amazing how quickly it goes by. Summer Band is right around the corner. Hopefully you have been practicing a little bit. The main things you should be focusing on are tone, and Movement One of the show. Memorization is essential to our success…the faster you get Movement One memorized, the easier it will be for you. Below is the summer band schedule. Attendance is mandatory.

Monday-Tuesday, July 25-26 8AM-11AM New marchers* Football Field
Monday-Tuesday, July 25-26 12PM-3PM All band members Band room

Friday, August 5 8AM-11AM All band members TBA

*A new marcher is anyone who has never marched with the Collinsville Crimson Cadets before.

Here are a few tips about what to wear: light-colored clothing, shoes (absolutely no flip-flops or boots), shorts, sunglasses, hats, t-shirt. Bring a water bottle, and some sunscreen, it’s going to be warm. It would help to bring your instrument too, and music.

There are a couple of changes in staff due to the Lewis’s moving. The new assistant director is Mr. Still from Arkansas, a graduate of Owasso. He is a trumpet player. There are two new guard instructors, Mr. & Mrs. Day. Most of the work will be done by Mrs. Day, with Mr. Day assisting as needed. We welcome these wonderful musicians into our family of Cadets!!!

The guard has been working hard all summer long, the music is almost finished, half of the drill is finished, and we’re excited about getting together again!!! We look forward to an incredible year, and making lasting memories. God bless you all.
