In addition to the usual fantastic music program next year, our bands and orchestras have the opportunity of a lifetime to play at Carnegie Hall in New York City as part of a music trip. Here are a few forms to look at/fill out for the trip:

Letter to Parents

New York Music Trip Registration Form (The tour company has made it easier to register for this trip. This is such a grand opportunity that we are starting registration early to make payments easier for families. There will be 2-3 dedicated fundraisers to help offset the cost once school starts)


Sign up for Concert Band (1st period) if you play a wind instrument or percussion instrument. Sign up for Concert Orchestra (3rd period) if you play a string instrument. If you would like to schedule an audition to be a part of the Wind Ensemble (4th period), Symphony Orchestra (2nd period), or Chamber Orchestra (5th period),  then schedule an audition date and time by sending an email to Mr. Soto at aesoto@capousd.org. The auditions will be held Tuesday May 16th, Wednesday May 17th, and Thursday May 18th in the band room (room 700 at SCHS). Mr. Soto will send out a list of those who qualified to the academic advisers before the end of the school year.
