Rehearsal Schedule Changes

Due to missed rehearsal time because of weather, we are making a few changes to our rehearsal schedule over the next two weeks. After-school band practice on Tuesday, Sept 19 and Tuesday Sept 26 has been moved to the evening from 5-8 PM. There will also be an added rehearsal on Friday September 29th, from 5-8 PM.

I want to apologize for the inconvenience – these changes are only to help us stay caught up by giving the kids more time with our instructional staff in the lead-up to our first competition on September 30th!
