Alas!  The LAST performance of the marching season!  The Cary Christmas Parade is comparable to the Apex Parade in many ways: It is approximately the same length; the route takes the band through the heart of a charming downtown; and it is usually very well attended. Additional parade information can be found at www.caryjaycees.org.  

As the Cary Christmas Parade is the last formal performance of our marching band, all uniforms are to remain in the band room and all marching shoes are to be taken home.   

Although we exchanged many words of thanks at our banquet a few weeks ago, I want to again THANK all of you - students and family members - for being you, and for making our season such a wonderful success. Our months together were filled with many wonderful memories, great musical moments, and a whole lot of life lessons!  I sincerely hope that our juniors, sophomores and freshmen will enthusiastically return next summer!  As for our seniors headed to college, I hope that you consider continuing your performance career by getting involved with marching programs at your respective schools!  You have such a precious gift—please continue to enjoy it!


Important Upcoming Date:

12/20 Holiday Concert     7:30pm (Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble)

Hope to see you along the parade route cheering on our wonderful band!
