McClatchy’s VAPA (Visual And Performing Arts) Academy is now operating in its new facilities. The newly refurbished auditorium will be the venue for our Gala Opening event. The music program’s contribution to the evening is a varied concert performed by full orchestra and chorus. We would like to stage an ensemble made up of current and former CKM student musicians. The date for the Gala is tentatively scheduled for Thursday January 18.
Please contact Jorge Muñoz at the link above if you are interested. Include your email, your preferred instrument and part or vocal range (example: I’m interested in playing clarinet 3 or I sing alto), as well as letting us know if you need to borrow an instrument. More information and sheet music will be sent out in mid-October. We look forward to seeing you.
Own A Piece of Nostalgia
Marching Band Uniforms
Would you like to own a retired McClatchy High School Marching Band uniform? We are looking for good homes for our older uniforms. You may own a full set – cadet, bibbers, shako, plume, baldric, and gauntlets – for a donation of $25. Contact Jorge Muñoz at the link above to find out how you can own a piece of CKM music history.
Marching Band Golf Cart
For those interested in something larger, we are also looking for a good home for our retired CKM Marching Lions golf cart. Yes, the one once used to haul marching band pit equipment onto the field. We are asking $200 for it but we will take a good offer. Contact Jorge Muñoz at the link above if you are interested in this iconic piece of CKM Marching Lions history.
