We are holding color guard auditions this week-a great turnout this year. March 11th Concert of Hope. (8 pm) Symphonic Band will be playing a world premier, guest composer has been here working with students. Wind ensemble and others will also be performing.
Lefeber-We have been very lucky to be in school and working together to play and stay healthy. With that said, we are still in the pandemic and so the upcoming performances will be moving to online. Wind & Jazz ensembles will be performing by Zoom for the upcoming performances. We are still trying to plan a Band trip for next year but need approval from the school board. More information to come as we know it.
