Events, Announcements, and Information

You may also pay using a credit or debit card by contacting the Band Boosters here.

Note from Mr. Fincher re: Saturday Clinics with Mr. Benzer

Several times this spring there are Saturday clinics with Mr. John Benzer.

Mr. Benzer is one of the leading music educators in the country and we are fortunate to have him working with our program! He is such high demand, that dates with him are scheduled over a year in advance. The Saturday dates I have scheduled were dates that I am bringing with me from my previous school.

Moving into 2019-2020 I will be setting up dates that are likely NOT on Saturdays...but for this year we need to make sure that all students are in attendance for the 2-3 hour block of time for their ensemble.

For all students to be successful, it is important that all students are present for these clinics.

If you have any questions, please contact me. But attendance at these clinics will be considered as important as attendance at a concert or marching contest.

Pay Attention To All Relevant Calendars

Each part of the Creek Band organization has its own calendar on the website calendar. You can filter to view only the calendars you need to see by using the drop down arrow in the upper right hand corner.

Please make sure you are viewing the calendars that are appropriate for you and/or your student.

The "Clear Creek Main" calendar will have information appropriate and needed for the entire group, but "Wind Symphony" will have specific events, rehearsals, etc. for just Wind Symphony, and the same for other groups.
