Welcome to the City High Band Website!
This Friday, August 29 is the first home football performance for the Little Hawk Marching Band and the weekend of our very first parking lot clean up.
Friday Aug. 29 at 6:00pm, All students report to the band room in their GRAY "Behind the Mask" T-shirts, blue jeans, and tennis shoes.
What time will the band perform? The length of the sophomore football game influences the start of the varsity game. If everything is on time, pregame will be between 7:15 and 7:30pm and halftime will be at approximately 8:15pm.
Sunday Aug. 31 at 7:00am.
The moment you’ve all been waiting for is almost here! The first City High School band parking lot clean-up for the 2014 football season.
Some background for new band families: The morning after each Hawkeye home football game, band members and parents clean the 15 UI parking lots where Hawk fans tailgate. The parking lot clean-ups are the band’s largest fundraiser. We need a lot of workers to pull this off, so please come out, parents and students, to help in our efforts. Gloves and trash bags are provided by the University of Iowa. There will be donuts and juice available following the work.
Students are expected to attend 4 of the clean-ups. Participation is required on Nov. 23 or Nov. 29, and the remaining three clean-ups can come from any of the other days. Students are encouraged to attend all of the clean-ups, however. Students who participate in more than 4 clean-ups will have the proceeds from each additional clean-up divided equally among them. Parents are enthusiastically encouraged to join their student and to help provide supervision to student crews. There is no need to sign up in advance. You will sign in at the staging area when you arrive to clean up.
For each scheduled clean-up, we will gather by 7:00 AM at the entrance to the Center for Disabilities and Development on the UI campus. This staging area is located just north of the main entrance to the University Hospitals, on the east side of Hawkins Drive. See the attached map to and picture of the staging area.

Today the City High Jazz Ensemble performs at the Iowa Bandmasters Association Conference in Des Moines at the Downtown Marriott Hotel inside the Cities Ballroom. The performance begins at 8pm!
