"... Chi-Hi Pep Band provides the best atmosphere in the BRC..."
It's beginning to look a lot like... BASKETBALL PEP BAND!
Below is the schedule for BRC basketball games that the pep band is currently on the books to perform during.
Students earn points towards an Academic Letter in Band for each pep band performance that they attend. Sometimes, there are additional perks for playing in the pep band such as free food and other goodies. We ask that every student try and attend 6 games so that we can have a great representation of our band program and our school as we take on our other BRC opponents.
Students should plan to arrive and be ready to rock in the band room by 6:45pm. Game time varies, so pay attention to announcements in class!
Students interested in auditioning for the WSMA State High School Honors Project (also known as Wisconsin's version of All-State Band).
You can sign-up for an audition here.
You can find the audition materials here.
You can find audition tips and practice tools here.
All student interested in auditioning for the Honors Band are responsible for the audition fee. If you are selected for this amazing honor the District will cover the cost.
If you are interested, fill out the above application and then setup a time to meet with Mr. Renneke to walk through the audition requirements - happy practicing!
Below you'll find the first draft of the Q2 Lesson Project schedule. It is based off the sheets you turned in and the levels that you selected.
Take a look at it and let Mr. Renneke know if you see any errors. There are still a few slots available, so get your info in and let Mr. Renneke which time slot you are selecting! Mr. Hitt also offers lessons, but you need to turn in your form to Mr. Renneke.

Good evening CFHS Band Family!
We are days away from the end of the marching band season and there are a few items that we need to make sure you are aware of before everything wraps up.
1. Itinerary for Youth in Music is on the website. Note that this is just a one day trip, there and back on Saturday.
2. Friday night after the football game we will be having some food and our end-of-season awards in the cafeteria. This event is just for our students though we will need a few parents who would be willing to help us serve some food and get things organized.
3. Speaking of the end-of-season awards, students need to submit their nominations for the awards!
CFHS Band Fam:
If you need a smaller size of the white Marching Cardinal performance shirt, they are here!
Bring in your washed shirt and I'll trade you for a smaller size.
CFHS Band Family:
Quick update for you - the itineraries for our next few events are posted on the website.
We are VERY fortunate that Mike Marcantano (one of the show designers) will be joining us on September 28-30. He will be at rehearsal on Thursday, at the game on Friday, and then we have a few hours on Saturday morning where he will be teaching us lots of awesome extras for the show - body work, ripples, horn flashes, the extra touches that will bring this show from a 10 to an 11!
I've planned it out so you will have PLENTY of time to then get ready for the homecoming dance, no worries! :)
Let me know if you have any questions. Keep doing the work necessary to make your performance grow for this weekend!

Performance Wear for Marching Cardinal Fans
We've gotten a lot of positive comments about the white performance shirts the band wore during the Pure Water Days parade and underneath their uniforms. Unfortunately for all of our Marching Cardinal families these great white shirts are part of our performance uniform and are for current Marching Cardinals only.
But we heard you and now we have a few great options just for families, friends, and fans of the Marching Cardinals!
Check out the options below. Order deadline is Friday, September 15.
Orders should arrive approximately two weeks later.
TUESDAY 9/5 (A)
THURSDAY 9/7 (A)
Next week... the closer!
This blog is intended to serve as a collection of announcements and information for current students and their families.
