You are invited to join our 5th grade band and orchestra for their first ever public performance.

This special evening will be both a demonstration and a performance for you, by the students. You will be impressed with the talents in the band and orchestra groups, and it’s always an exciting night when the students perform for their first time in public!
Our 6th graders are working on music for their separate festival concerts, which will be held in early February and March. We will get the information to you soon.
