Calendar

Most of the dates for this summer / next fall have been entered into the band calendar. We hope this helps with planning. Please understand these dates could be “subject to change.”

CHHS Graduation

Details are still being worked out, but the CHHS Administration has asked the CHHS Band to perform at graduation. We are excited to provide music for this special event!


With that being said, all “in person” Wind Ensemble and Symphonic members that recorded for UIL and/or performed at the Spring Concert, are not Seniors, or siblings of a Senior, will perform in the graduation ceremony.


If you are a Concert Band student, or “virtual” and would like to participate in this mainly outdoor event, email Mr. Barnard. The more the merrier!

Mark Your Calendars!

On Friday, May 28th, we need a BIG GROUP of people to help move equipment to Heritage Elementary School. Due to maintenance inside CHHS, we will hold most of our rehearsals at HES this summer!

Spring Trip 2022!

It’s happening - the CHHS Band is heading to the BEACH!
