CCHS Marching Band 2019

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 after school 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 several 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.

For more information about the award-winning Cherry Creek High School Marching Band, please explore the rest of this website or contact Mr. Libby or Ms. Vaughn.

Three Important Changes from Last Festival

  1. Venue Change.  This year the Festival will be held at the Adams 12 North Stadium, not Adams 12 Five Star Stadium. Spectator parking areas have changed considerably; see the Arial Map in the Spectator Info tab.
  2. The Adams 12 Health and Safety Policy requires masks be worn by all visitors inside any District building. For the Adams 12 North Stadium, this means you are required to wear a mask when you are inside the restroom, inside the concessions stand or inside the press box. You are not required to wear a mask when you are outside, including the stands, common areas, field area. Please bring a mask and wear it when required.
  3. A new ticket policy is detailed on the Tickets tab. Due to reduced seating at this year’s venue and to reduce crowding, we will be offering three separate tickets: AM-Prelims, PM-Prelims and Finals. There will be no Combo tickets available.

Pit & Props Crew for Legacy is still looking for volunteers!–SignUpGenius

At marching band competitions & home football games, the bands have a just a couple of minutes to get the props and all of the pit instruments on to the field.  The band depends on family & friends to help make that transition as quickly as possibly to avoid penalties.  Please consider signing up to help at Prelims, Finals or both at this Pit & Prop SignUpGenius.  If not Monarch, please consider other dates as well.  Question?  Lisa Kelly.  Volunteers will meet Lisa and the team near the CCHS Pit Truck at 10am in the Equipment Truck parking area.  The equipment trucks parking area is in the center of the map.


3 .  Butter Braids are on the way!

Selling Butter Braids, Cookie Dough and Coda Coffee raises funds that go directly into your student’s account to help fund marching band expenses.  This year we will be selling Butter Braids, Yumbana Gluten-Free cookie dough flavors and the award-winning Coda Coffee. Each Butter Braid product sells for $13.00-$14.00, Gluten-Free Cookie Dough sells for $13.00, and Coda coffee $16. For every product sold, 40% of the sale goes to that student’s account.  This fundraiser is a great way for students to build up the balance in their accounts if they choose to participate!
