Dear Show Band Concert Goers,

I hope all is well with you and your families during these unprecedented times.  As most of you know, the Show Band suspended all music activities this past March when the guidelines to prevent COVID-19 infection were released by the State of California.  In accordance with those health restrictions, all school districts statewide are abiding to those guidelines. This includes the Show Band, which operates as a class in the Chaffey Adult School.  At this time, any reliable or accurate information as it pertains to the start of the 2020-2021 concert season is tenuous at best.  However, as soon as we are given the "green light" to re-start operations, I will be sure to inform you ASAP.  You can visit our website at to view our tentative 2020-21 concert schedule.  The Show Band Family hopes that in the interim, you have been using other means to enjoy music.  We sincerely hope that when we restart our band activities, you will once again be attending our exciting concerts in beautiful Gardiner Spring Auditorium located on the campus of Chaffey Adult School.

Recently, one of our charter Show Band members, clarinetist Beverly Castle has taken on a wonderful project.  She is endeavoring to put together an archive of recordings of Show Band performances during Maestro Jack Mercer's tenure as director.  Beverly is collecting any CD, VHS, or DVD of concerts held between the years of 1985-2013.  If you happen to have any recording(s), please contact us by email.  Include your name and email address and Beverly will contact you.  Send your information to:  Thank you in advance for your input.

In the meantime, stay safe and continue to enjoy the beauty of music.

Your Show Band Director,
