The Raymond Cree Middle School Band Program promotes student and community interest in the performing arts by providing musical, cultural, and educational experiences not otherwise offered in school. Specific goals of the program include developing skills in reading and listening to music, performing with self-expression and an awareness of the role of music in history and culture. Students are encouraged to set high standards, develop problem-solving strategies, learn new skills, and explore their artistic creativity. Self-esteem is increased through individual and group accomplishment while combining musical performance with travel opportunities. The Instrumental Music Program consists of an exploratory percussion music class, two Beginning Bands, Advanced Band, and Wind Ensemble. Our Marching Band is the largest organization on campus and performs at numerous parades throughout the first semester and incorporates our own Visual Corp. An after school Jazz Band meets during the second semester and is geared for seventh and eighth graders. The Wind Ensemble and Advanced Band are consistent recipients of Unanimous Superior Ratings at District Festival and Gold Ratings at Forum Music Festivals. Students also participate in the Annual PSUSD District Solo and Ensemble Festival (SCSBOA) held at Raymond Cree with consistent high marks. Students that receive Superior Ratings often participate at Regional Solo and Ensemble Festival. Students often participate in summer music camps such as Idyllwild Arts Academy and the Wildwood Music Camp. All these performing opportunites have allowed students to perform at various functions within the community and Southern California, such as the Palm Springs High School Homecoming Parade, Palm Springs Veteran's Day Parade, Borrego Springs Parade, Festival of Lights Parade, Disneyland Magic Music Days, Indio High School District Music Festival (SCSBOA), Forum Music Festivals at Fullerton College, Palm Springs Police and Fire Departments, Stroke Recovery Center, The River in Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs Library and City Hall, and the Tour de Palm Springs. These groups also perform for elementary schools within the Palm Springs Unified School District and at various Raymond Cree school functions.?
