End of the Year Elitch’s Festival

The first payment towards our trip to Elitch’s and the music festival is due on Thursday October 22nd.  It is $20 of the $40 total.  The second payment will be due on April 1st for the May adventure!

If your student has or will have an annual pass (before we are there, not waiting in line to buy one), the cost is $16 to help with bus and festival expenses.

Thanks!  It’s going to be an amazing trip!


CMS Newsletter 10/12

We have our fall concert tomorrow night 10/13!  I am excited to share with you some of what we have been working on the past couple months.  What you need to know:

CMS Band students need to be in the band room with instruments ready at 6:30pm for warm-up.  That means arriving at 6:25 or 6:20 if they need a little more time to be settled.  Parents, family, and friends can then head to the cafeteria.

The concert will begin promptly at 7:00pm and will be approximately 45 minutes.  Please stay for the entire concert to support the hard work of every band student.

Concert dress is listed in the syllabus as the CMS Polo (I am picking up the order either this afternoon or tomorrow morning for students needing a shirt), black pants, black shoes/socks.

Quick recap:

– Concert Tuesday 10/13

– Instruments ready at 6:30pm

– Concert starts at 7:00pm

– CMS Polo and black concert dress

We’re all excited to see you there!

In other news…

Students had a blast hanging out with the Bengal Regiment this past Thursday night at the football game!  Lakewood’s team may have been destroyed (0-41, ouch!), but we had lots of fun cranking out some tunes and checking out the marching band show.

— If your student is interested in joining the marching band, there will be an opportunity to sign up and gather information later in the school year, just keep an eye out.  Eighth graders moving into high school are welcome to join as well as middle school students who can commit to the rehearsal schedule in the fall.

CMS Orchestra Concert

Tuesday October 20th at 7:00pm, Creighton will show off the awesome orchestra program headed by Michelle Ewer.  Come out to support the other side of our instrumental music program, it is sure to be a great time!

Mnozil Brass

A great concert to attend coming up is at Metro State University of Denver in the King Center on Wednesday, October 21st at 7:30pm.  Tickets for the event can be purchased online here:

Tickets are usually around $100, BUT not for this show.  It is $20 for students, $40 for adults.

This group tours around the world performing hilarious skits along with impeccable musical skill.  It’s a wonderful show to see for anyone!
