Great night of some great talent. That's how you put twenty four different pieces of music ranging from a 160 piece concert band, 60 member choir, a color guard, brass ensemble, jazz ensemble, dance and vocal soloists, and various other musical acts into an hour and 45 minutes! I'm proud of you all.
Dear Band Family:
Recently, a freshmen member of our band family, Abby Zettlemoyer, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. To help the family during this difficult time, the Band Boosters will be taking donations of gift cards. Suggested gift cards include gas and common restaurants to help with travel expenses connected with care, Barnes & Nobles (Abby's a reader), grocery stores, etc. Donations can be made at the Winter Solstice Band Concert on December 17. There will be a donation bucket set up at the Band Boosters table. Any cash received will be converted into gift cards.
We appreciate any donation you would like to make. Most of all, please keep the family and Abby in your prayers.
