Chick-fil-A Bowl Details

As you know, our band has been invited to participate in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

Tickets:

The cost of our student tickets has been generously donated.  This is an event that most bands travel to Atlanta to participate in as their “band trip” for the year and pay for their individual tickets.  We are fortunate that we were invited to participate and our student tickets have been purchased for us.

All parent tickets including for chaperone and equipment crew cost $175.00 each and includes admission to the game, Fanfest, security clearance to enter with the band, and a credential.  We understand that this is an expensive game admission.  If you would like to chaperone but not attend Fanfest or the game – admission to the parade is free and you would be welcome to either hang out on the bus or could visit the CNN center for lunch/etc? While the students attend the game.

If you buy your tickets through us, the tickets will be blocked together with the student tickets.  We will all be sitting in the same general area.  Because the ticket requires entrance as a group, all tickets purchased by parents will be handed out after the parade on 1/1/2018.  You can purchase your tickets from now until November 17, 2017.  Tickets can be paid for by check (made out to the CHS Band Boosters), cash (in an envelope with name of student and name of parent), or online at https://chstrojanband.revtrak.net/trojan-band-trip/

Great Opportunities Coming Up Next Month at UWG

UWG-For many of us who grew up in the West Georgia area I think we take for granted how blessed we are to have a thriving university like the University of West Georgia right in our back yard. When it comes to enriching our band students’ development, the university provides us with outstanding resources and opportunities without large investments of travel, time, and finances. There are two such opportunities coming up in February that Dr. Josh Byrd, Director of Bands at UWG wanted us to share with you.

First is the Destination: Music event, which takes place on February 15 and is open to high school juniors and seniors interested in checking out a day in the life of a music student.  Complete details and registration information can be found by here: Destination Music 2016 Complete Info

Also taking place the same day will be UWG’s Scholarship Day, where students will have the opportunity to interview for Presidential Scholarships.  For students interested in this event as well, please register using the following Scholarship Day link (note: students must be accepted to the University by February 1 in order to be considered for the Presidential Awards from this event).

Next up is UWG’s 12th Annual Saxophone Symposium, which takes place on February 20. This is a great opportunity for students to work on anything and everything related to the saxophone with Dr. John Bleuel as well as participate in a reed and sound clinic with UWG faculty member and Vandoren artist Bob Culbreth. Complete details and registration information can be found by here: 2016 UWG Saxophone Symposium Information and 2016 UWG Saxophone Symposium Registration Form.

For details about auditioning/applying for the Music Program at the University of West Georgia, please see here: 2016-2017 Music Application.

We hope that you will consider these wonderful opportunities while supporting a wonderful community partner. Please direct further questions to Dr. Josh Byrd at the Department of Music at UWG, jbyrd@westga.edu or 678-839-6267.

GO WEST!  GO WOLVES!!!
