Ada Harris Wildcat Band
Welcome to the Ada Harris Wildcat Band Page!
Ada Harris has a beginning band and an intermediate band. 4th-6th graders who are joining the band for the first time (or switching to a new instrument) will start in Beginning Band. After one full year in band, students move up to Intermediate Band. Both ensembles perform at a variety of school and community events, such as the Encinitas Holiday Parade, Band-o-Rama, Cardiff Ice Cream Social, and our own concerts! Students play flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, or concert percussion.
Sectionals (instrument-specific rehearsals) are once a week before school, from 7-7:45am. Beginning Band rehearses after school on Thursdays, from 2:45 - 4pm. Intermediate Band rehearses after school on Wednesdays, from 12:30 - 2pm. The band has some instruments available to students, or they can rent from a local music store.
There is a suggested donation to participate, but no one will be turned away if they are unable to contribute. The Wildcat Band is primarily funded by donations from families. We wouldn't be able to do this without your support! Donations cover coaching staff, instrument purchases and repairs, sheet music, and instrument supplies. We greatly appreciate your participation!Wildcat Band 2022-2023Cardiff SEA Music BoostersThe Cardiff SEA Music Boosters provide fundraising and organizational support to the Wildcat Band.
