CDH Band

The Cretin-Derham Hall Band is a very active organization, being both a part of the regular curriculum and being involved in many co-curricular activities.  Musically, band provides a wide range of experiences, which includes concerts, pep band, marching band, and band trips (every other year).  Socially, band provides opportunities for camaraderie and long-lasting friendships.  Plan to participate in band for all four years (and even be in sports and JROTC) and it’s sure to be a valuable experience both musically and socially. 


From the Band Director

Hello Band Students and Parents,

This is a new way to send Band Updates. We are just launching it now.

I will be putting upcoming events and due dates here, so that you can quickly reference Band information.

-Remember the Joint Choir & Band Concert on Wednesday, December 18 at 7 pm. Call will be at 5:45 for uniforms and preparation. 

-Remember to turn in your Band Chocolate Sales to me this Friday, December 13.

-We are in need of chaperones for the Band Trip in March.  If you have Virtus Training, please see me about being a chaperone. 

Stay Tuned (pun intended), to this area for more updates.
