BAND OPEN HOUSE

On Tuesday, March 26th, from 6-8 PM we will be having a band open house. This will be your first opportunity to try each instrument and see what you like and which instrument may be the best fit for you. Additionally, we will have more information about instrument rentals and band. This is a great opportunity to meet myself, Mr. Roberts, our high school band director, and several of our students in the band program. Treats will be provided as well! Spread the word to all of your friends. You don’t have to be signed up for band to attend.
