The CHS band has a budget for regular maintenance and repair of communal instruments. Some of the instruments are very old, and thanks to Mr. Vogelsberg, have far surpassed their expected useful lives. No instrument, however, lasts forever. We have limited funds for purchasing new instruments and equipment, yet these things are important for sound quality in performance and competition, as well as for providing our students with a positive band experience.

We depend on the generosity of donors — individuals, groups, and sponsors — to help us replace worn out instruments each year. If you would like to help, please contact fundraisers@centaurusband.org.
