Thank you to everyone who attended our fall concert last Thursday. All of our students sounded great and it felt very good to be performing in person again. All concerts are recorded and can be viewed here.
This Thursday’s practice is scheduled from 1:30 - 4:30 because of the adjusted schools schedule where students will be finished with school at 12:15. Please avoid all conflicts.
We also have a football game this Friday where we are inviting 8th graders from Loma Visa, Wells, and Villegas Middle Schools. We are excited to meet them and have a great time!
This Saturday is first marching band and colorguard competition at West Valley High School. We are very excited to be performing for the first time competitively! Please show your support ($10 for admission, $5 for children under 12). Itinerary for the day is below. Brunch will be provided at 9:30am and a light dinner will be provided after our performance. Students are welcome to bring additional money for any snacks, food, drinks, and souvenirs.

Jennifer Herrera, 10th
Jennifer has really stepped up this year, taking a lead role in our show as a Colorguard soloist! Day in and day out, she practices hard, and it shows. She’s a talented performer, and we appreciate all that she does.
This week, we continued working on our second movement! We had a Saturday rehearsal dedicated to adding visuals and plugging different elements, and it went great!
Thank you to everyone who helped out/ played at our concert last week! We are incredibly proud of what we were able to do and perform together ! Following the concert, all concert bands will move forward working on fundamentals to be even better for our next concert.
