Marching - Jazz - Pep - Concert

We're very excited to have you join our band program!

A few things to think about before Band Camp begins:

  • The NYC/DC trip contract was due in May, as was the first deposit. At this point, if you want for your son/daughter to travel with us, please contact our Directors to see if there are spots avaialble. Also visit waruband.org and click 2016 Trip info. Read over the expectations and information available. Please let me know if you have questions.
  • Audition results were posted Friday, April 18. If your son or daughter has decided not to participate in a spring band (Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band or Concert Band), please let me know ASAP. The high school counselors are busy getting kids's schedules changed.

Again, we're so glad you've decided to be a part of our band program.

If you'd like a 'taste' of what the high school program is all about, we're having our spring concert on Wednesday, May 13 at 6:30pm. It's an outdoor concert (weather permitting) in our circle drive. We're having a BBQ and will feature every ensemble that meets in the spring. Also, we'll be introducing our new assistant band director that evening. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy. If you're interested in some great BBQ, there's info on the band website and you can contact Chris Exum for ordering details. This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thanks and see you all soon.

At this time, everyone (students and adults) planning to travel should print and fill out the attached contract. This does not commit you to the trip but you do need to be aware that ALL payments are non-refundable. The form is due back on Wednesday, April 22. The trip deposit is due Monday, May 4. For more information, check out the "2016 Trip Information" tab under About Us in the menu. 

We have the opportunity yet again this year to send a limited number of students to participate in the Kansas Masonic Band, which performs at the Shrine Bowl each year. This year it is held at Fort Hays State University on July 25th, and the band camp will start a few days before that. Sponsorships will awarded to students on a limited basis, with preference given to upperclassmen. Check out the Shrine Bowl website and the WaRu Band Facebook page for more details.
