Home Opener This Week at Grisham Stadium

2016 ShowShirt-v5As the month of August comes to a close this week, it brings with it our first official home performance of our 2016 show in Grisham Stadium this Friday, September 2, 2016. We are looking forward to performing our 2016 show, Out of the Blue: Expect the Unexpected, for the Trojan Nation during halftime at this week’s football contest against the Riverdale Raiders.

StadiumSeatWe also have a unique opportunity to share with our band parents and supporters this week from the CHS Athletic Boosters. Representatives from the Athletic Boosters will be in the lobby of the Don Hall Band room this Tuesday afternoon from 6pm till 7pm to pre-sell new, cushioned reserved seating in the section between the band and the current reserved seating on the home side of Grisham Stadium. This Tuesday is an exclusive opportunity just for band parents and supporters to purchase these new reserved seats for the 2016 season, prior to them being available to the general public. So make sure to stop by and take advantage of this opportunity to secure reserved seating near your awesome Trojan Band!
