Jazz Band gets their Groove On
Congratulation to the Jazz Band for playing two gigs in just one week! The students performed at the CHS Open House last Tuesday and the ABC Parent Leadership Conference on Saturday morning. The band only rehearses one day a week but still manages to perform like seasoned veterans. I'm excited for the future of jazz at CHS!

Spring & Summer Events & Rehearsal Schedule on the Google Calendar!
As we get closer to concert season I'll need to be making adjustments to our 7th period rehearsal schedule. Things like adding percussion, adjusting for performances, and rehearsing with only the students attending the San Francisco Trip come into play. Please review the calendar at CerritosHSmusic.org to learn about this minor changes. To make up for the cancelled rehearsal last week, I am adding a rehearsal on Tuesday, March 19 from 3-4:30 pm. If you are not attending San Francisco, you are excused from rehearsals labeled as 'San Fran. Rehearsal'. Please plan accordingly.
