Incoming Students

Dear Incoming Band Students and Families:

Welcome to four very exciting years of your life! We am so pleased that you have chosen to be a part of the Cibola Golden Regiment Band! We offer many new opportunities for you to perform and improve your musicianship in the coming years, including participation in state festivals, small ensembles, marching band, percussion ensemble, color guard and winter guard.

The fall marching season does require some out-of-school rehearsal time. This will include Saturday rehearsals which will be posted on the calendar, and after school sectionals. Each section will have a day of the week to rehearse, this will be decided by section leaders. Always check the calendar in advance for up to date information at our website www.cibolabandboosters.org.

The marching season is short and runs from August through the end of October. Band students get many opportunities to perform. These events include football games and our competitions/festivals that we participate in throughout the season. We will have Zero Hour during marching season, then Zero hour will be scheduled if necessary after the regular marching season. Please note, our 2020 marching band will most likely involve an audition for placement. Students will need to provide an audio recording of required audition materials and possibly a video audition. More information to come on that… but first!

Below is important information about upcoming rehearsals and band camp as well as. Band camp is one of the most fun and rewarding experiences you will have in the music program. This is where we learn all the music and drill to be performed during our half-time show. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you have a conflict with something. I want to help you have the best band experience of your life here at Cibola High School.

Sincerely,

Nathan Matherne, MM – Director (nathan.matherne@aps.edu)
