Important Graduation Information
Huntsville City Schools informed us that bands and choirs will not be performing at graduation this year. I have removed the date from the calendar below as a performance for the band.
Band Banquet - Friday, May 14th
The band banquet is set for the evening of Friday, May 14th at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens. It will be an outdoor event. Students and families are invited. We will have BBQ catered by Brent Bourland, a band parent and a part of a BBQ team that competes on the Netflix series "Bama-Q!"
More information to come!
WE NEED NEWSPAPER AND LARGE GLASS JARS!!
Our percussion ensemble is playing music that requires LOTS of newspaper. We are looking for anyone to donate newspaper to the band. Just bring it to the band office! We are also looking for large (1 gallon or larger) glass jars.
