  • Advanced tour!
    On Wednesday May 17th, I will be taking all of the advanced band and orchestra students on a tour to play a concert at all five of the elementary schools in the articulation area. The goals of the concerts are to give the students experience following a scheduled timeline and the chance to perform as a full ensemble in front of all of their peers. This is also a great way to show some of the younger students what band and orchestra is all about.

    ♫ Students will need to bring a sack lunch.

    ♫ Students will need to arrange to be dropped off at Dutch Creek at 8:15 and be picked up from Leawood at 2:50PM.

    ♫ Students should wear their black Columbine Area Music shirt and jeans.

    ♫ I need at least 4 parents to go with us. One driving separately and hauling percussion equipment.
