Good afternoon parents,

The Chamberlain Band program will be launching its first ever apparel website in the coming weeks! Using this site, parents, grandparents, neighbors and friends of the band can purchase their own 2018 show shirt, collared CHS Band Booster shirt, hoodies, dri-fit shirts, and other apparel that show off your support of the Band of the Mighty Chiefs! Mr. John Kamenar has been providing our program with all of it's apparel needs for the past three years and will be attending our ice breaker Thursday, May 17th.  If you are itching to order your band gear NOW and can't bear the thought of waiting - John will be taking pre-orders May 17th at 7pm in the chorus room with some samples available to look at. There will also be an informational meeting for new parents, but feel free to sneak in and place your order.


Thank you and GO CHIEFS!

-Mrs. Griffis

An itinerary for graduation is posted above. Please review it carefully, and arrive fully dressed for the 1:00pm call time. We need just a few parents to assist in the transporting of larger wind instruments (percussion instruments are provided at the Fairgrounds). Please email myself or our Booster President, Belinda Rensch ([email protected]), if you can help.

As we head into summer, I HIGHLY encourage EVERY band student to look into attending a summer music camp. These camps, usually provided by local universities, are a great way to make new friends, develop leadership skills, and continue their standard of musical excellence over the summer. Below are a few camps you can choose from. 

USF Summer Band & Drumline Camps:

FSU Music & Leadership Camps:

UCF Instrumental Camps:

Penny's Leadership & Color Guard Camps:
