Symphonic Band Practice
Symphonic Band (2nd and 5th period Band Classes and selected percussion) will rehearse this Thursday until 5:30 pm in the band room for our upcoming Christmas Concert.
After listening to the ideas of our members, we are hosting the first annual Christmas Soiree. The event will be held this Friday, December 15th from 7pm till 9pm. The location is:
The Hope Center
3 Hickman Street

This event is designed to allow our members to have social time together in an off campus situation. What a better way to wrap up 2017 than with a celebratory event! Students may dress up and bring a non-band colleague to this event. Feel free to bring treats and we will provide beverages. You may join us too if you like! The more the merrier.
