CCHS Marching Band 2016

CHERRY CREEK HIGH SCHOOL MARCHING BAND

The Cherry Creek High School Marching Band has a long standing tradition of excellence. Under the direction of Tim Libby and Sara Wynes, this group of talented student musicians has earned awards for excellence in performance both on and off the marching field. Students develop and improve their musicianship, leadership and work ethic in order to carry on that tradition with each new school year.

The Marching Band holds a two-day mini camp in May, a one-day camp in July, and two weeks of band camp just before school starts in August. During the fall, the band rehearses after school three days a week.

The CCHS Marching Band performs at school events including Spirit Day, pep rallies and football games, and competes in two to four marching competitions each season.

The band also performs annually in the Littleton Western Welcome Week Parade. In even-numbered years, the band performs in the Denver Parade of Lights and travels to either California or Florida for a variety of exciting performances.

Latest News & Events

Update Charms ASAP Please!

Treasurer Patti Rojec has “turned on the Charm” for the start our new season. All families can now access their personal accounts on the Charms Office website or app. For the new students, everyone who signed up at Information Night got instructions and a Charms account number that evening. If you don’t have a number or need assistance logging in, please email Patti.

We use Charms to manage student account finances, email lists, and directory information.

We are asking EVERY PARENT to please log into Charms ASAP and confirm that the information is correct. We would like the parent contact information, not just the student information. Please make the corrections in Charms yourself, or contact Patti to make corrections. This summer, we will be using this information to make the band directory, so please ensure that your contact information is correct by mid-June.
