2021-2022 CV Instrumental Music Auditions

Auditions will be due April 30th for the 2021-2022 school year. All wind, and string students will be performing “Sonata-Giga” by Corelli. Percussion will be performing “Solo Number 6."

The final cut will be announced the week of auditions so you will have to learn the whole piece. 

For incoming students this is only required if your are interested in admission into one of the higher level ensembles: Wind Ensemble, Advanced Orchestra, or Jazz Band. If you are not interested in one of the higher level ensembles you should sign up for Symphonic Band or String Orchestra.

Video auditions will be submitted via google drive no later than 11:59 on April 30th. In the beginning of your video please state what class you are auditioning for:

“My name is Mr. Krause and I will be auditioning for wind ensemble and jazz band.”

If you are auditioning on a rhythm instrument for jazz you must submit a video of you playing along with two different jazz standards. They should be in contrasting styles such as swing and latin.

Audition music can be downloaded here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/170XWvvOY0Jf2T0O4LBccAYuUlICEUrZa?usp=sharing

2021 Spring Concert Dinner and Auction

Hello Clayton Valley Instrumental Music parents, guardians, and program supporters,

The CV Music Boosters, our Music Program Director Chance Krause, and our students have started work on the “Spring Concert Dinner and Auction”.  Please plan to join us and save the date on your calendar for Friday, April 23, 2021.

Our goal this year is to maximize participation with all students and families, so we are taking a totally different approach from our prior fundraiser “Lights, Camera, Auction”.  We will monitor the progress of COVID19 safety protocols as we approach the event – but there is still some possibility that this event may well be our primary music event to spotlight our students’ work this year. More information is to come as to how this event will look as we get closer to April 23rd.

Attendance to this event will be completely free to our families and students.  However, we will offer an optional dinner to purchase for students and families, and we will conduct the auction and fundraiser portions of the event with some small changes.

This annual Spring fundraiser for CV Instrumental Music families, friends, and supporters has been one of our most popular events for many years.  In addition to an evening of popular music by all CV Music ensembles and a dinner, the event provides the largest amount of donations to support equipment and instrument replacement needs.  We also receive some matching funds from the CVCHS administration based on donations, and increase the visibility of our program to many in the community.  A special thank you to the many businesses, organization, and parents and families for their generosity to support the auction, dinner, and fundraising goals for the program.

Each year our boosters leadership reaches out to many organizations and businesses in the community, but we are also grateful for parents each year that have shared a donation from their businesses, who contact their employers for matching donations, or perhaps that extra timeshare week you might donate, or a special item of value like a gift basket, etc.  Would you consider a donation this year?  If so, please contact Janell Meine at cvmusicfundraiser@gmail.com, or Scott Floyd at cvchsmbpresident@gmail.com - we’d love to talk with you about your donation idea or commitment.

Please remember that the Clayton Valley Music Boosters are a 501c3 charitable organization and your donations are always tax deductible.  Our tax ID number is 94-2519508.

Thank you for your support for instrumental music and our many ensembles.

2020 Percussion and Color Guard Camp



I am excited to announce that we will be conducting a percussion and color guard camp beginning on July 27th through August 7th, Monday through Friday from 8 am to 1 pm.


The goal of the camp is to work on both fundamentals and for each group to perform a show at the end of the camp. Front ensemble, color guard, and drumline will be practicing independently on different performances for the entirety of the camp. The plan is for drumline to continue working on our winter percussion show, front ensemble to explore and perform several large percussion ensemble pieces, and for color guard to choreograph and perform their own standalone performance. This offers us the opportunity to improve and develop our performers in a self contained camp that would be possible to roll into a combined extracurricular activity during the school year if we were allowed to by the school and the county. 


The camp will be open to any student who wishes to participate, new students and experienced students alike.. If you are already an instrumentalist who is intrigued by drumline please come! If you are a clarinet player who wants to join color guard, we want you there. If you are a percussionist and want to explore the wonderful world of large percussion ensembles this is your opportunity!


For safety reasons it is important that our percussionists bring their own sticks and mallets. However, if you dont have these, the school will provide them. Students will not be allowed to share materials. Students and instructors must wear masks at all times, and 6 feet of distance must be maintained between all students at all times.If your student forgets their mask, we will provide one. Students should wear athletic clothing and bring plenty of water and sunblock as this camp will take place outside.


If your student is feeling ill or running a fever they should be kept home.


A link to a google form to sign up is attached below as well as a copy of all of CVCHS’s summer activity guidelines. Please fill out the google form so we have an idea as to who to expect on Monday.


I look forward to seeing you there!
