2019 Indy 500 Festival Parade
The Centerville Blue Regiment has been selected to participate in the Indy 500 Festival Parade on May 25, 2019 in downtown Indianapolis. Representing the Indiana State Fair Bands, the Blue Regiment will join the showcase of marching bands including the ISSMA Marching Band Class champions. The parade is televised and more information will be sent home closer to the event. This will be the second time Centerville has marched in this prestigious parade.
Registration for the 2019-2020 school year is underway. Please consider the following as you enroll in your classes:
- Interested in going band? Need a refresher before coming back to band? Want to learn another instrument? If so, start by enrolling in Beginning Band classes. See Mr. Roesch to initial your registration sheet to ensure that you are in the correct class. You will need to obtain an instrument to take this course.
- Jazz Ensemble students must be concurrently enrolled in Concert Band. See Mr. Roesch if you are interested in joining this exciting group.
- We are proud to be a diverse band program, with a large majority of our musicians participating in a wide variety of athletics. Band class will not interfere with you playing sports (ex. our cheerleaders and football/basketball players are excused from pep band events where they play).
Band Recruitment Information
I have had such a fun time visiting the 6th graders this past week. They had such a fun time making a lot of noise trying out band instruments. I hope you’ll see the benefits of joining us to start your own musical journey in band. Our OPEN HOUSE will be on May 9th in the high school band room from 4:00 – 6:30. For additional resources such as instrument demonstration and learning the benefits of studying instrumental music, please visit Be Part of the Band!
