    Disney Itinerary & Performance Change

    As of today, 8/7...there has been a change in the performance date for the Amherst Marching Comets for the Magic Kingdom Parade.  Due to scheduling conflicts with Disney, we have moved our performance to Tuesday, March 31st.  The band will be performing during the evening Spectro-Magic Parade as we have in the past just before the nighttime fireworks show.  While we understand that a few parents may have already finalized their travel plans to catch our performance on Sunday, we felt this was a better fit for the band rather than march at 10AM on Sunday morning.  Hope those of you with travel plans can adjust accordingly.  We were told that is one of the busiest weeks next spring for performances and were lucky to get another night venue.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

    A note for all parents wanting to Chaperone for the Amherst Program

    At this time, we need to have all Chaperones that are traveling with the band to have a Volunteer Application on file with the Band Office.  At this time, you WILL NOT need a background check unless it is an overnight stay.  However, please do fill out the section where it says the school can look into your background and that all info you have put down is accurate.  This is for all chaperones traveling on the buses for games and competitions.  You can download the form on our site, fill it out, and bring it with you on your first assignment.  You will also need to photocopy your ID and attach it.  (You may do that in the band room copier) 

    You may download the form here.
