5th and 6th Grade Band

    The CRIS Instrumental music program, under the direction of Mr. James Walter and Ms. Aubrey Parry is built of over 200 dedicated CRIS students. The students attend small group lessons once every six school days for forty-five minutes.  Making music is a team endeavor. For this reason, the 6th grade band meets as a whole  once each lesson cycle from September through June. The 6th grade band prepares for three concert performances each year. These include a winter, spring and a special "Meet the Instruments" performance.  The 5th grade band meets as a whole once each cycle beginning January in order to prepare for their spring concert debut. 

    Music can name the unnameable and communicate the unknowable. "
