We need a few parents to accompany the students to the competitions. This is a highly sought after job and the band
director has the final say on which parents chaperone each event.
Our spectators are the best! It is so much more fun and exciting to go to the competitions in a group and sit together
and show the band your ‘love’. Please let us know if you are interested in joining us and meeting new people.
