August 8 DCI Watch Party!
There is a Drum Corps International show in Akron on Monday, August 8, at 8:00 PM. We have rehearsal that evening, but after rehearsal, feel free to stay for a WATCH PARTY in the band room! You can bring snacks, hang out and watch drum corps with your friends (and staff members, too!) If you don't know what Drum Corps International, is, CHECK THIS OUT!
The concession stands are the SINGLE BIGGEST fundraiser done by the Copley Music Boosters. The Boosters provide staff members, equipment, scholarships, instruments, meals, props, and an incredible amount of support to our music programs grades 5-12! They CANNOT do this without help! We have FIVE home football games this Fall, as well as several soccer and volleyball games. If EVERY parent signed up for just one or two events, we'd have them ALL covered for the year! This year, we're adding an extra-special SECTION NIGHT to the home football games. We'd love to see section parents bonding at the concession stand! Dates as follows:
Friday, 8/26 - Flute, Clarinet/Bass Clarinet Night!
Friday, 9/2 - Saxophone, Horn and Baritone Night!
Friday, 9/9 - Trumpet Night!
Friday, 9/23 - Trombone, Tuba, Colorguard Night!
Friday, 10/7- Percussion and Field Commander Night!
Please use the Signup Geniuses below to sign up to volunteer at some games!
CHAPERONES, DRIVERS, FRONT ENSEMBLE CREW SIGNUPS!
We rely on parent to help chaperone away games and competitions, as well as to drive the band trailer and U-Haul to games and competitions. At home games, we can always use a few parents to help move front ensemble equipment onto the field and then back to the HS during immediately after halftime. If you are willing to help with any of these jobs throughout the season, please use the Signup Geniuses below:
Here is a LINK to the recommended lyres/flip folders for each instrument. PLEASE ORDER TODAY!
