Band Camp 2020

Welcome back!

Here we are… It’s August and school starts in just one week! So, let’s get our season started! We’re moving forward and looking for creative, innovative, and outside-the-box ways to bring our group together to make music and grow friendships. Please keep an open mind, hold your critiques and look for the positive. As with everything these days – things change all the time and we have to roll with it the best we can. It’s not a year to toss away, but one to stretch us out of our comfort zone and learn something new.

Starting Monday, August 10th, Band Camp will run from 3pm to 6pm Monday through Friday – and of course, everything will be online.

Band Camp Update

In a normal year our marching season would be ready to begin. But it’s 2020 and things just aren’t the same, unfortunately.

We will NOT be having our first week of band camp next week – August 3 through 7. You get one extra week of summer this year!

We will, however, be having some sort of Band Camp the following week of August 10 – 14. We’re not sure yet what Band Camp will look like, but more details will be available next week as soon as we get all the i’s dotted and t’s crossed. Stay tuned!

We will also hopefully have more details about the school year as a whole as it works within the Instrumental Music Program.

Hope you all have been enjoying the summer break and we look forward to doing as much as we can safely and within the District guidelines.

See you soon!

2020-2021Marching Spartans Mini-Camp

2020-21 Marching Band & Color Guard (Marching Spartans)

Mini-Camp
June 8th-11th

Mini Camp goes Virtual!

Mini-Camp includes all 9-12 students for the 2020-2021 school year interested in Marching Band or Color Guard!

Mini-camp will happen on June 8-11 from 9am-1pm each day. During this time, we will be working on the preparations needed for our Fall Marching Show.

We will be meeting in Zoom meetings with staff instructing in Music, Visual, Guard and also time to connect with each other. Please schedule in this time into your days now as it is vital that everyone shows up and participates.

Freshmen families, this is the most important rehearsal you will attend as it will get you connected to your section leader and other students leadership, who will be doing sectionals throughout the summer. It is also the time where staff can focus on your training and becoming a true member of the La Cañada Marching Spartans!

The zoom info is in the LCHS Instrumental Music calendar Instrumental Music website, lchsmusic.org. Looking forward to seeing all 100+ members (yes we are over a 100 now) on June 8th.

Here are the details as well:

A Note from Mr. Stone

Thank you all who were at our festival concerts last night. It was a great night of music and I am so happy that we got to share what we’ve been working on for the last 3 months.

In light of recent events, I have to be the bearer of bad news. In accordance with public health recommendations about the coronavirus, La Canada Unified School District has requested that we look into the upcoming events for the next month. On top of that, the organizations that sponsor our outside events have also taken these same recommendations and have made some announcements as well. SCSBOA (our festival sponsor), WGI (Guard and Drum Line), SCPA (Drum Line) and WGASC (Color Guard) have all cancelled any remaining events for the rest of this season. This means that all drum line and color guard shows, as well as our festival next Friday, have been cancelled.

This is a sad and surreal situation which saddens me by the loss of such great events we had planned for our students. However I know that all of these organizations and our district treat our student safety as priority number one and that is where all these decisions are rooted. While we all are grieving the loss of the events, which is completely normal, we also have to act for the greater good in this moment.

What does that mean for the rest of our year? As this is a dynamic situation, I can’t predict the future beyond Spring Break at this time, but I do know we will continue to teach, learn, grow and challenge each other to be better musicians, performers and friends.

We will try to keep you up to date on all instrumental rehearsals and events as we find out new information. Please be patient with us and the speed in which we send out our statements and information since we are trying to make sure we are separating the truths from the rumors.

Thank you all for your support in this wild and uncertain time.

Jason Stone
Director of Instrumental Music
