We will be releasing a website later this week so you can reserve your seats for the concert.

Students should wear their concert band attire that was given out the past couple of weeks.

Councill Park Performance
The wind ensemble was invited by the City of Huntsville to perform at the opening of the new Councill Park. This is the site of the former William Hooper Councill High School, the first public school in Huntsville for African American students. The mayor, city council, and other dignitaries are planning to attend. We are honored to play at this event. You can get more information from this older article: https://www.huntsvilleal.gov/construction-set-to-begin-on-councill-high-school-park/
Who: Wind Ensemble students
When: Monday, October 26th. Leave at 12:00 pm and Return by 2:00 pm (during wind ensemble class on the first day all traditional students return to school)
Location: Councill Park is located next to the Public Library on St. Clair Ave. This is also across from First Baptist Church. Approximately 5 minutes from HHS.
Transportation: Student vehicles. Because of the close proximity to the school and smaller group of students, we are planning to drive over to the park at noon on the 26th. If you do not drive, please arrange a carpool with another student or an adult. Please contact Mr. Tankesley if transportation is an issue.
Parking: Park in the public library parking lot.
Uniform: Polo Shirts tucked into jeans (blue jeans, no holes). Bring a jacket if needed (HHS Band or HHS jacket preferred). You must wear a mask when not playing your instrument!
