SING SING SING performed by Benny Goodman

Lyrics by Louie Prima
Sing, sing, sing, sing
Everybody start to sing
La dee da, ho, ho, ho
Now you're singing with a swing

Sing, sing, sing, sing
Everybody start to sing
La dee da, ho, ho, ho
Now you're singing with a swing

And when the music goes around
Everybody goes to town
But here's something you should know
Ho ho baby ho ho ho

Sing, sing, sing, sing
Everybody start to sing
La dee da, ho, ho, ho
Now you're singing with a swing

And when the music goes around
Everybody goes to town
But here's something you should know
Ho ho baby ho ho ho

Sing, sing, sing, sing
Everybody start to sing
La dee da, ho, ho, ho
Now you're singing with a swing

TOCCATA FOR BAND
SPRING BAND TRIP INFO
We are tentatively planning to take the CHS Bands to a competitive music festival in Santa Clara, California from April 23 through 26, 2015, pending District approval. This festival is sponsored and organized by “Music in the Parks”, a group our District band programs have used with great success for many years. This organization has over 25 years of experience in providing well-organized festivals for middle and high school students at 22 locations across the U.S. We’d like every band member to participate in this great musical experience if possible, so we’re sending this letter for the purpose of providing you with the details necessary for you to plan ahead.

This trip will provide a competitive opportunity for our band in addition to the trip. The competition is structured as a learning experience, and uses nationally known adjudicators. They will provide us with taped and written comments on our performances to help improve future performances, and will be eligible for trophies as well.

Cost
The projected cost of the trip at this time is estimated to be $295.00 per student or adult.
This includes:
• Round trip bus transportation
• 3 nights hotel accommodations
• Meals included where indicated
• Admission to Great America Theme Park
• Festival Awards and Souvenirs

We are finalizing our costs, but we estimate students will need to bring money for 4 lunch stops and 1 dinner stop. There should be no other expenses.

Fund Raisers
We have already had the summer fireworks booth sale this year to help students raise money for the trip. We also provided opportunities to raise money by helping with the Trailband Concert (11/26/10. These events are sponsored by the Canby Music Boosters to help students defray part of their expenses. You, as adults, may also raise money by working through the school in the refreshment stands at Portland Rose Quarter events such as Blazer games.

Each student (or their family) that participates in any fundraising activity is eligible for a scholarship which may be used to cover some or all of the cost of the festival. The amount awarded is determined by the amount of your fund raising participation. If the student does not attend the festival but has helped with fundraising, they may be awarded a scholarship for future trips or band related activities/fees. (Because the money is earned under a non-profit status, it is illegal to return any fundraiser money to the students or family). Money from sources other than fundraisers (such as money paid directly by you) is refundable until April 3, at which time we are obligated to pay all invoices. There are no refunds after that date.

The payment schedule is outlined below. You can follow it, use money already credited to your student in the Booster accounts, plan to make payments as indicated below, or fundraise and make payments as needed to reach the total amount by the due dates indicated. (Make checks payable to Canby Music Boosters with memo, "Music trip". It will be credited to your student)

Just in case you have an urge to travel too, we need adult chaperones, and parents are encouraged to attend! The cost is the same as for students. We strongly believe the adults have as much fun as the students do. You will receive much more information regarding this trip as it approaches, and there will be a parent meeting in early April to provide final details.
