Summer Band Workshop
The Arts Education Program of Cumberland County Schools is pleased to offer the annual Summer Band Workshop. This four day program is open to all middle and high school band students in grades six through twelve, who have successfully completed one year of instruction. Workshop procedures will follow all current CDC and NCDHHS guidelines for student safety including the wearing of masks and social distancing.
The band workshop is planned for June 14 - 17 at Terry Sanford High School from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 daily. A daily lunch will be provided by CCS Child Nutrition. The workshop is designed to provide a challenging opportunity for band students to enhance their knowledge of music within an ability-level group experience. Experiences will include small group, large ensemble, audition preparation, and concert activities based upon student levels, interest, and total workshop enrollment. While the workshop is designed for in-person instruction, virtual participation may be offered as needed.
Total cost for the workshop is $50.00. Students and parents will need to arrange daily transportation. Students may wish to bring a snack for the daily break. Registration for band students is on Monday, June 14 from 8:30 - 9:00 a.m. Please download, fill out and return the application form (above) with $50.00 to your band director by May 21, 2021. All checks should be made payable to the Cumberland County Schools. Payments are non-refundable after May 21. You may also mail the registration form with payment to:

Band instruction is offered at middle and high schools throughout the county schools. In addition to school performing ensembles, students may also audition for placement in the annual All-County Band Clinics and Concerts for middle and high band students. Many CCS band students compete successfully for membership in the All-District and state Honors Band clinics. In addition, high school band students participate in CCS’s exciting and outstanding Marching Band programs.
