Parent Volunteers Needed!!!! – Our band students will be turning in their concert wear after each concert.

2) Symphonic I Band Performance At Northwestern (Completed)Last Tuesday (April 26), our Symphonic I band performed in the Pick-Staiger Concert Hall at Northwestern University in a separate performance with the Evanston Township High School.

Choose one or more shifts and enjoy working with great people. along with meeting bands, orchestras and choirs from many different states.
