NEWS & UPDATES
School has been out for 4 weeks but for the Coyote Pride Marching Band it’s a busy season! Summer practice is off to a strong start with Colorguard, Winds, and Drumline rehearsals weekly. It is neat to see new faces mixed among the seasoned veterans who know how necessary and fun these early practices are during the summer months.
The Campo Verde High School Bands held their last concert of the year on Thursday, May 10, featuring performances from the school’s Symphony Orchestra. The bands performed to a full auditorium under the Direction of Director of Bands, Matt Kozacek, Assistant Director of Bands, Taylor Mitchell, and Director of Orchestras, Crystal Payne.
The event served to bring the local community together for an unforgettable jazz experience. The full house loved hearing our student musicians and the band got to experience the "real world" of jazz gigging and performing in a restaurant atmosphere.
The Campo Verde Junior Varsity Guard (CV Green), Varsity Guard (CV Copper), and Indoor Percussion Ensemble (CVIPE) concluded a highly competitive season after performing at the WGAZ Championships held at the Wells Fargo Arena in Tempe, Arizona.
We are proud to announce the following CVHS student musicians, who earned a place in the All-State Honor Band. To achieve this successful outcome, these young musicians had to demonstrate musical maturity, among other key elements, to rank above hundreds of other Arizona musicians in the All-State audition process.
Audition materials for next year are now available for your 8th grade student to start working on! We will be scheduling with Mr. Bannon a time in mid to late April to come to SVJH and listen to students who want to audition. Auditions ARE NOT required. Student can stay in Concert Band or Jazz Band I if they would like.
