Band News – Sept 25

Good morning everyone! Thanks for your patience in waiting for a schedule this morning. It was a busy weekend and we have a busy week ahead!
Thanks to everyone who came to Meet the Rebel Regiment night and a special thanks to the parents and volunteers who helped with props and fundraisers. The students had a great time performing for a very supportive audience. I can’t wait to see where we go from here!
This week we welcome our Sound Consultant, Erik Kossman, and our Percussion Arranger, Tom Rarick, to visit with us. Both are absolute experts at their craft and I look forward to the students meeting them and learning from them.
