|On Friday, July 25 the band students have the opportunity to travel to Vanderbilt’s stadium in Nashville to attend this premier event for the Drum Corps International tour. If you are not familiar with D.C.I., it is a marching activity that competes across the country each summer. The groups are not school-associated and perform and compete at the highest level. This year five current CHHS band members and alumni competing this summer.
For more information on Drum Corp International click here.
We will depart from the CHHS band room at 8:00 AM that morning and return late night that night, probably around 3:00 AM.
This trip is not a required event but is highly recommended for all students. We will observe at least one of the competitors rehearse that afternoon and then go to the competition that night in Vanderbilt’s stadium.
We will be using only one charter bus so the attendees will be on a first-come-first-served basis.
The price for this field trip is $75.00 and includes charter bus transportation and show ticket. We will have two meals and a “snack stop” that you’ll need to buy.
If you are interested in chaperoning, let us know. The chaperone price is the same as students.
Please complete the attached form and include it with your payment (make checks payable to CHHS Band Boosters). Spots are reserved only after payment is received.
I hope you’re all having a great summer!
