To Students and Parents Considering the Rock River Concord:
We are very excited to announce our isecond season of a new MACBDA Band (Mid American Competitive Band Directors Association)
The Rock River Concord We build character through our commitment to music. Passion ~ Selflessness ~ Trust ~ Challenge ~ Unity
What: The Rock River Concord is a consortium of Music programs in south central Wisconsin. Even though it is only just beginning for the Concord, we have assembled a knowledgeable and dedicated instructional and design staff, a team of skilled and supportive volunteers, and a core of talented and passionate students.
None of us can wait for the season to get started!
But there is always room for more!
Who: Our intent is inclusivity. No matter what school you’re from, you’re welcomed. The only requirements are: ~ Must be currently in High School or will be next school year (2018-19). ~ Must be involved in their local music program. ~ Must be driven.
If you are: Looking for a challenge. Would love to be immersed in the Marching Band experience. Looking to strengthen their leadership skills.
We would love for you to join us!
We have a spots available in every section, and if we don’t, we can make one! Winds: Flute, Clarinet, Saxophones, Trumpet, Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba. Percussion: Snare Drum, Tenors, Bass Drums, Mallet Percussion, Aux Percussion. Rhythm Section: Electric Bass, Electric Guitar, Piano. Color Guard: Flag Line, Weapon Line.
Where: Home Base for the Concord is Fort Atkinson High School. All rehearsals and camps will take place in Fort. We have several Fort Atkinson families who are prepared to host traveling students if needed.
All of the shows take place in Wisconsin with exception of the National Cherry Festival Shows in Travers City Michigan.
How Much: Our goal when starting this organization was to offer a complete immersive Musical and Athletic concentrated experience for less than the average 1 week Summer Music Camp.
To that end we are able to keep membership dues at $400.
Note: If the only road block for your participating is the cost. Come talk to one of us. There are always ways to help a student in need.
Thanks for your time and consideration.
