Program Order – dress for the concert is ALL BLACK (8th graders in band shirts?)

We have two goals here folks:

  1. Making great music and continuing to challenge you as players
  2. Helping these 8th graders see how fun high school and band is and encouraging them to keep it up. 

Both of these are VITAL to our growth as a band and a program and YOU are playing the most important part.  Be a great ambassador for our band!
