Our band features students from varying talent levels and all walks of life in our school.

We will be performing at the University of Maryland and Liberty University in 2019

FAQ:

YES! You can play a winter/spring sport and do band!

We practice 2-3 days per week once school begins and 1-2 days per week in October, Season concludes the end of October with only 5-6 Saturday commitments total.

We ask that all rising 9th grade band members do marching band their first year, and if it is not for them, that is ok! It is a great experience! We experience students each year who decide to do it as sophomores and they regret not doing it freshmen year.
