January-February Newsletter

Outstanding performances abound! Both the Veterans Assembly and the Holiday Extravaganza were wonderful. We raised over $600 for the Small World Angel Program. Congratulations to our 25 students selected to a region band! This is a HUGE accomplishment and we are proud of ALL students who gave their time and energy to improve as musicians. Our whole band improved from

this process.
