IMPORTANT EXPENSE INFORMATION FOR MARCHING BAND AND SHOW CHOIR-

If a student should drop marching band and/or show choir after the season has begun (July prior to the start of school OR once the choreo/marching camps are over)- the student/family ARE responsible for rewrite fees. These fees will depend on how much of the blocking and drill has been completed by the drill writer/choreographer. It is extremely expensive and time consuming on the ensembles to go back and correct all of the blocking and charts from the beginning when a student drops out/quits. Marching Band can run up to $250 per song and Show Choir up to $100 per song. Please understand the importance of maintaining membership for the entire season to avoid this expense being applied to the student’s financial obligation.
