Common Audition Q&A:
Q) Can I still do Color Guard if I am attending New Tech?
A) Yes. There are shuttles that will take you from New Tech to and from CHS for classes and after school rehearsals.

A) No. Unlike the band classes, Color Guard is single blocked which allows you to take an additional elective if you choose.

A) Yes, like almost every other sport, drill team, cheer, club, etc... there are fees that are collected to offset the budget provided to CHS Band and Color Guard.
