This year, we have the opportunity of taking a five-day, four-night excursion to Boston, Massachusetts! Here is the schedule for departure day (Friday April 1st):

  • 5:15 AM Call Time at the Music Room
  • 5:30 AM Load Bus
  • 5:40 AM Bus departs to airports

What You Need to Pack:

  • School I.D. (State I.D. if you’re 18+)
  • Concert Attire (Ladies: Black dress pants, black blouse, black dress close-toed shoes, black socks. Gentlemen: Black dress pants, black dress shoes, black socks, white long-sleeve dress shirt, black bow-tie <no coat is required>)
  • Nice business attire for the concert we will be attending. Wear this on the plane because we will be going straight to the concert hall from the airport
  • Umbrella
  • Cellphone Changer/extra battery if needed
  • Jacket (we will be expecting cold weather according to the forecast)
  • Sunscreen

  • Money for souvenirs (there will be free time with chaperones on the 4th day)
  • Money for lunch each day. Breakfast and dinner are included

So we don’t have to charge more money for instrument rentals and transportation, we are asking rooms with 3-4 students to share one large suitcase for every 2 students. All members will need to bring their instruments and luggage this Thursday, March 31st to the Music Room. We will tag the luggage then.

Each student is allowed ONE personal item such as a backpack (pack a few dry snacks) that can fit under the seat on the plane. Flutes and Clarinets must put their instruments in their luggage or carry-on. No liquid containers over 3oz. are allowed in personal items. Toiletries over 3oz. should be packed away in your luggage in a zip lock bag.

All prescription medication will need to be dropped off to the school nurse by Tuesday, March 29th

This is a school function and all rules regarding language/behavior are still in effect. Once students are in the hotel room for the night, they must not go outside. DO NOT OPEN YOUR DOOR TO ANYONE OTHER THAN A CHAPERON. Students are not allowed to request room service or request anything from the front desk/hotel staff unless Mr. Soto is notified. We expect all students to be attentive and timely to insure that everybody enjoys the trip.



Color Guard Rehearsals for the winter/spring season are in the UPPER CAMPUS MPR on Tuesdays 4pm-8pm and Thursdays 4pm-6pm. Be sure to arrange rides to be picked up from upper campus.


Jazz Band/Combo Auditions December 9th, 3-5 pm! Sign up in the music room for an audition time. See Mr.Soto for more information regarding specific instruments, but all instruments will need to know the blues scales as well as the selected piece. Below are the tracks for Rose Room.

San Clemente High School recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. From the looks of it our instruments have been around for that long.

Many of our mallet keyboard instruments are in desperate need of repair and replacement. The instruments that we currently have were purchased many many years ago and were not intended to be used as a part of a competitive marching band and drum line.


Our instruments are not made to be transported to and from band concerts and competitions. The frames are broken and the actual bars are warped.


With your generous support I can purchase 2 new keyboard instruments with stronger frames, bigger wheels,and synthetic keys. These features are a must for students that use the instruments in and out of the classroom. These features would also make the keyboards last longer so that future students would be able to use them for years to come.”
