After a long season (and a very long bus ride), the Red & Silver Briagade won 2nd place in Class AA at the BOA San Antonio Super Regional! This is a very competitive event, and the students should be so proud of the hard work they've put in over the last two weeks to push us to this accomplishment. Congratulations to the band!
Auditions for Concert Band and Symphonic Wind Ensemble are this week, and ensemble rosters will be posted once those are done. Concert season starts on Friday with the first rehearsal for each group, and our winter concert is only a month away!
