Winter Guard 2017: We are having our auditions for the 2017 Winter Guard in the MPR from 6:30-9:00pm. No prior experience is necessary and new members are welcome and encouraged to attend. We are hoping to offer two winter guards this year to increase opportunity and development for all members. A sample practice schedule will be available this week for review. There is a fee associated with this group since it is in addition to our school offerings and is an AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM. Fundraising, scholarships, and payment plans are available but funding for this program comes directly from member donations and fundraising.

Band Donations: We are off to a great year with the band program please consider assisting us by continuing to have such an outstanding program by donating or fundraising for the band program. Since we receive virtually no funding from the school it is important that as participants we all contribute to the financial stability of this organization.

Holiday Pledge Parties & Winter Pledge Party Sign ups Available

One of the biggest ways that we earns funds annually for our band program is through the Music Marathon. Pledge parties are a big way that we promote the event and earn funds. We create small “bands” that go out into our neighborhoods and communities and play music and ask for donations. We are kicking them off this year with a limited amount of “holiday pledge parties.” You can sign up to participate or host on our volunteer website:
