Uniform Rental/Purchase Form:

The CMS music program requires that Wind Ensemble and String Orchestra students wear our concert dress uniform for all performances.  These uniforms are available to rent (for a donation) or to purchase. If your child is likely to continue with music at VHS, they will be able to use their CMS concert attire there.

Equipment Use Form:
The Ventura Unified School District provides instruments for any student to use.  These instruments are available free of charge.  However, we request that parents donate $50 per year to assist the Music Program with the cost of maintaining these instruments in good working order and with the purchase of new instruments.  This donation DOES NOT cover the full cost of maintaining our orchestral instruments, but is very helpful in ensuring our program can be sustainable.
