Thursday, April 27th, 2017 @ 6:30pm

Reserved seating.  Tickets available ONLINE.

http://bandsofsantiagosharks.seatyourself.biz

Once again, we will be selling general reserved seating for $7 and preferred seating for $10 (roughly the front mid-section at the slightly higher price).

Tickets at the door will be $12 and on a first-come, best seat available basis. 

All BOSS families and board members will need to purchase tickets unless they are actually volunteering to work the event.  BOSS students will be admitted free of charge to the jazz concert if they aren’t performing, and other current CNUSD students can purchase tickets at the door for $5.  This is in special “Student” seating in the front – if you’d prefer your student sit with you, you will need to purchase a seat for them in your block of seats at regular price.

**Accessible seating and cash sales will be available only through these means, not online. 

If there are any questions, issues or special requests, please feel free to email, text or call. (BossTicketing@gmail.com or 909-641-1191)

Rose Parade Tickets

BOSS Family,

I really apologize for the last minute notice but I have very EXCITING news!

The tickets for the 2018 Rose Parade go on sale TOMORROW MORNING at 9am!

The website to purchase your tickets is www.sharpseating.com

It is VERY important that we all sit together as a BOSS FAMILY, so we have two areas that we would like you to purchase your tickets:

1st Option: Area One Grandstand 320  (320 Colorado Blvd.) Tickets are $100 per person
**These are the seats where you will be guaranteed that the kids will be playing and is near Camera Corner where the Rose Parade is televised. We would love to have a HUGE crowd in this section!

2nd Option: Area Two Grandstand 550 (550 E. Colorado Blvd.) Tickets are $70 per person
**These are less expensive seats but you are not guaranteed that the kids will be playing.

Regardless of which option you choose, when picking your seats, try to get as close to the street as you can. It is harder to hear the further you go up the bleacher seats.

We will also be purchasing a block of seats in the 320 Grandstand that you can purchase from boosters at a later date, but we recommend that if you have more than 2 seats you are purchasing, that you do so now to ensure that you are in this section.

Please let me know if you have any questions about tickets and we will try to answer them as best we can!

So excited!!! Let the Rose Parade Year Begin!!

Band Booster President

Letter from the Directors

Dear Band and Color Guard Members (and Parents),

We hope you are having a fun and relaxing summer!  We are looking forward to a great band and colorguard as we start this new school year.  The quality of returning and new students is very high and should prove to be our best year yet at Santiago.  What an exciting year we will have!

Music and drill for our “Chicago” show has been purchased and modified.  We are very excited about this show, but cannot emphasize the importance of your attendance at all rehearsals – your absence will have an adverse affect and may result in being placed as an alternate for the field shows. Most importantly, make sure you are present at band camp August 5, 8 & 9!  It is imperative that each band and color Guard member is at every rehearsal beginning Thursday, August 11 at 3:00 pm so we can start learning both the field show and music during band camp.  Band camp will include marching and music instruction, interactive games and time to see old friends and meet new ones. Since our school year begins in early August, band camp has been truncated to only three days, which makes attendance even more important.

Special instructors have been hired to assist with rehearsals this year.  This year’s instructors are of the highest quality and will be a great asset to our band and colorguard.  We have instructors from USC, University of Illinois, Arizona University, Cal State Fullerton as well as other local universities and colleges. We are extending some of the instructors’ contracts to continue working for us after the school year officially begins.

To the Parents:  As we continue to grow in quantity and quality, our financial needs are growing as well.  More buses for transportation, additional assistants, increased festival fees, music purchases, band polo shirts contrasted with a very small music department fund from the school have made it necessary to ask for booster donations to cover the costs.  Though the overall budget to run this organization is large, we believe the benefit in your child’s participation is worth much more than the cost. Extra fundraising, business and community donations, etc., will help cover some of the costs but it is necessary that each parent financially contribute to offset costs. The 2016-17 band and colorguard budget is over $180,000.   The Booster donation this year has been set at $400.00.

Please make your Booster Donation payment at your convenience in the month of July, online on our band website http://www.bandsofsantiagosharks.org/store/ or at the Parent Information Meeting on Thursday, August 11, 2016.  You may pay by credit card or check.  Checks should be made out to the Santiago Band Boosters. Deadline for donation payments is September 30, 2016.

Parents:

There is going to be a barbecue for all band and colorguard students and parents on Thursday, August 11 at 6:00 PM, followed by an important meeting at 7:00 p.m. in the theater.  At this meeting the band and colorguard will perform some of our fall music and information will be disseminated concerning the band and colorguard, schedules, fund-raiser plans, concerts, football game performances, grading policies, booster information, costs, needs, the jazz band spring trip, etc. will be discussed.  A calendar with scheduled band events as well as the band and colorguard manual will be handed out at this time.  Marching and concert items may be ordered at this meeting as well. We will distribute contact numbers for some of the finest private teachers in Southern California at this meeting.  They have agreed to give private lessons to interested students at Santiago High School. It is imperative that all new and returning students and parents attend this meeting.

We will again be using the Charms website, Email blasts, Twitter and Facebook for band and colorguard updates.  Please follow us on Twitter at santiagobands.  You may follow the band boosters on Facebook at BOSSboosters. We ”tweet” and email upcoming events, parent & student information, etc.  It is a great way to stay involved and informed.

We are looking forward to a great year for our band and colorguard.  Football games, festivals, concerts throughout the year are just some of the events on the calendar.  2016-17 will be our best year yet!

Again, remember the rehearsal dates and times.  It is important that you are there for every rehearsal as well as the uniform fitting schedule.  We will see you in a few days.

 

Sincerely,

Mr. Parish & Mr. Dudek
