The Marching Cardinals Color Guard holds practices during the summer on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 11am. Students interested and involved in color guard should plan on attending. Students will work on technique, conditioning, and choreography and work for the upcoming marching band show!
The Marching Cardinals percussion section holds weekly practices on Wednesdays from 6pm to 8pm throughout the summer. "Drums & Dogs" gets its name because for the first part of the time we spend together we work on fundamentals, technique, and show music, and then we also eat some hot dogs!
New this year is the additional "Drums after Dark" which runs from 8pm to 10pm. When Drums & Dogs ends, any student interested in sticking around can gear up and work on percussion technique in general. If you have goals of being in the battery in the future, this would be a great time to work up some technique!
JUNE 15, JUNE 20, JULY 27, AUGUST 3 New this year - on a few select dates this summer will be "Fundamentals & Frisbee" which is a chance for students to get together and work on marching fundamentals and basics, and then conditioning through ultimate frisbee!
The first hour will be spent on marching technique and fundamentals directly related to the fall show. The second hour will be a pick-up game of ultimate frisbee for whoever can join us!
No need to bring your instrument. Dress appropriately for the weather - we will be outside the whole time. Bring a water bottle, and a frisbee if you have one! (I have one in my garage, but really, who even knows where it is?!)
