Caballeros Alumni Open House
    *** Location Change ***

 Sunday January 12, 2014 - Open House / Music Rehearsal


Location: JOHN F. KENNEDY HIGH SCHOOL
61 - 127 Preakness Avenue
Paterson, NJ  07522
Time: 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm 
For: Horns, Drums & Colorguard 
PARKING:  Park in the parking lot where the loading dock is located.  That will be the only entrance into the building we can use.  There is another event going on at the school at the same time.  Park in the lot where you see our Corps truck. 

As some of you man have heard the Post 199 suffered some damage as a result of the Polar Vortex (extremely cold weather) that we encountered earlier this week.  As a result of the damage, the Post is now under repair and will be off limits through the end of March.

We had to cancel the food that was going to be catered for us at this rehearsal and there will not be any hot dogs sold either.  Bring a sandwich for when we take our afternoon break if you want to eat something.

I Can't thank you all enough for your concern and offers to help during this crisis.  We are still going ahead with the Open House Rehearsal scheduled for this Sunday January 12, 2014.  See you all Sunday @ Kennedy H.S.

Caballeros Alumni Announce 2013 Program!

For the 2013 season, the Hawthorne Caballeros Alumni Corps will take a trip back in time to revisit the 1976 championship year -- a year where the Corps swept every caption at DCA finals. Drawing on the repertoire that garnered them their fifth World Championship title in seven years, Arranger & Program Coordinator, Larry Kerchner, is hard at work adapting his ’76 charts to twenty-first century instrumentation, while Drum Instructor, John Smith, guides the percussion section once again.

The repertoire will include: “Bully,” “Brazil,” “Echano," “Hill Where the Lord Hides,” "Cabs Signature," and, of course, the Alumni Corps’ perennial Color Presentation, “Cha Cha Cha Flamenco.”

The Corps is looking forward to an outstanding season in 2013. If you’ve been getting the urge to get back on the field, come on down to Hawthorne and take the field with us once more!

The Corps will be hosting an Open House on Sunday, December 9th, from 12 until 5 PM, at American Legion Post 199, 1 Legion Place, Hawthorne, NJ 07506.
