SRHS Band Boosters
2015-2016 Competition Show
Night Watch - by Jay Dawson
*** Limited DCI Tickets Still Available ***
*** 2015-16 Band Packet Available ***
Our first performance of the new year is Band Camp Exhibition on Friday, July 24. This is the culmination of a week of hard work learning the new show, and marks the beginning the 2015-16 season.
Enjoy your summer! We'll see Rookies, Section Leaders, and Drum Majors on July 14 for Rookie Camp, and everyone back for Band Camp Week beginning July 20.
We have a few tickets remaining. Tickets are limited, sold first come first served, until we run out. Contact Mr. Scott for ticket information.
Since the show is the Sunday night before school starts, we can't include this in Fair Share and take everyone. We do encourage everyone to make the trip if possible. This is an excellent opportunity to see what a strong, well-rehearsed band can do, and a great way to get our band members hyped for the coming season, especially after a hot and exhausting week of Band Camp!
This event is open to students, family, and alumni. We charter a bus for the show. You do not have to be a registered Wake County Volunteer to travel on the bus since this is an open invitation with tickets individually purchased.

Band Camp begins Monday, July 20. We need lots of volunteers to make Band Camp successful. Don't worry about experience. We only need a willing heart. Camp is a good way to meet other parents and get to know our students. Don't be shy!
We will also need donations for Band Camp, especially Gatorade powder and fruit. Some parents have found area grocery stores willing to donate fruit for our students. It never hurts to ask. Non-perishable items may be dropped off at school after July 7th. For everything else, please drop off any day at Band Camp.
If you can donate items, we need:

The Niagara Falls / New York / Great Adventures trip was a hit! Everyone had a great time and many new experiences. The days were long, the nights were short, and everyone came home tired. Hopefully everyone has recovered and is looking forward to the 2015-16 trip!
Next year's trip is already in planning. We hope to have it mostly locked down by end of July / early August so everyone can plan around the dates. Get started on fundraising now, and check those passports. Passport information is available at the link below.
Update - June 18, 2015
I hope and trust you are staying cool during this mini heat wave. We've been up and going for a while since the end of school. We had a fabulous Band trip to Niagara Falls, New York and New Jersey. Next year's plans are already in the making for the Cruise and St. Patrick's Day Performance during Spring Break 2016, so get ready. We have fund raising events going on now for the upcoming year, so sign up for Walnut Creek and additional opportunities.
