Tucked away in the gently forested hills and sunny meadows of northeastern Kent County lies Sandy Bottom Lake and it’s fictional fine arts camp, Camp Sandy Bottom. Come join the Cedar Springs Jazz Band as they celebrate the many talents and eccentricities of this mythical camp in “Kumbayah, Camp Sandy Bottom.”
On Saturday, February 5 at 7:00 p.m. in the High School Auditorium travel back to the seventies and join the members of the Cedar Springs Jazz Band as they re-create those by-gone summer days and nights with songs around the campfire, parent problems, punking your best friend and the first stirrings of teen love. There’ll be tube socks, disco balls, bell-bottoms, an homage to Farah Fawcett’s hair as well as dancing, tumbling, unicycles, water fights and a stunt canoe.
At the heart of all this loopy fun will be the exceptional music of the Cedar Springs Jazz Band under the direction of Robert Robuck performing such seventies standards as: Birdland, Watermelon Man, Pick Up the Pieces, and Chameleon. This year the fundraiser will be enhanced by something completely different; Mr. Shaw and the newly formed Cedar Springs Jr. High Jazz Band.
Will Camp Sandy Bottom lose its lease and close? Who will win the annual dance competition Miss Camp Sandy Bottom Dance Queen? More importantly, will the drummers ever find girlfriends? Join us to see!
Tickets for this fundraiser are only $5 and can be bought at the door or by calling 696-1200 ext. 6133.

The CTA Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Bands performed their annual Christmas concert in the school auditorium Thursday evening, December 9, under the direction of Mr. Matthew Palmieri. A large turnout of parents and students enjoyed traditional carols, marches, and chorales. The music program at CTA continues to grow and thrive under Mr. Palmieri and we are thankful for all he does for our students.
