Dear CBCS Families & Friends,
Music education in our school provides youth a creative outlet, sharpens memory, fosters teamwork, and allows young people a safe place to give and receive criticism and support.
This May 6-8, 2020 the Crested Butte Community School Band will attend a Denver Band Showcase. The 22 Middle & High School band students will spend 3 days in Denver performing & learning various music techniques. This is an incredible educational opportunity for middle & high school students to be able to perform and learn together.
22 students traveling from Crested Butte to Denver for 3 days is quite costly. This year, the CBCS Band students are fundraising for this trip by hosting a donation bake sale on Elk Avenue during the Mardi Gras parade on Fat Tuesday February 25, 2020 from 4-6pm. Please stop by, say hello and grab some goodies!
Band Students are also hosting a Students Pick the Music Middle School Dance on Friday February 28, 2020 at the school, which is sure to be fun for everyone!
We are reaching out to ask for your financial support. Will you please consider making a donation to the Crested Butte Community School Middle & High School Band? Your donation will go towards the students’ Band Showcase entry fee and hotel lodging and will help defray the cost for ALL students.
Thank you in advance for your help. Your generosity will go a long way to creating a memorable experience for all band students.
Please remember that there is no donation too small or too large.
