CSHS Full Orchestra UIL Event

Select Band members will have the opportunity to perform with our Orchestra program for their UIL Orchestra Concert and Sight Reading Contest on Tuesday, March 3rd. It has been 4 years since we have been able to offer this to our students and are excited to begin preparing. Information has been given to those that are directly involved with this event. The Pre UIL Concert for Full Orchestra has been moved to the evening of Tuesday, Feb 25th at Consol.

Night of Percussion Concert

Percussion students are currently receiving solos and ensembles to start working on for their annual Night of Percussion Concert. This year the concert is scheduled for Saturday, Feb 22nd at CSHS. This is always a very entertaining evening!

Concert and Sight Reading Season

Our Wind Ensemble, Symphonic and Concert Bands have begun the process of preparing for one of our most important events of our Concert Season, the UIL C&SR Contest on Thursday, March 26th which is hosted at CSHS. Each Band will perform three prepared musical selections and sight-read one brand new piece of music for the Judges. Make plans to support these hard working and talented students during that event. More details to come as we get closer to the event. Some of the performances will be during the school day and some will be after school hours. We will also be having a Pre UIL Concert before Spring Break in order for us to be prepared. Currently this is scheduled for March 5th, but stay tuned in case it needs to be changed.
