Hi, hey, hello!
SIUE Percussion Festival
The percussion students, as well as our drum majors, attended the SIUE Percussion Festival this past weekend. The students performed, then received comments immediately after the performance from qualified percussionists. This highly educational experience was a perfect start to our season. Congratulations to them for their performance and their hard work this summer. We are off to a great start for this season!
Parent volunteers for performances are essential to our band performing at the highest possible level. Please see below for opportunities for you to help cheer on our students so they can focus on the music-making!

Oct. 4 Homecoming Parade Walkers
On Friday, October 4, we have our Homecoming Parade, followed by the Homecoming football game. This evening tends to be a pretty hectic and fast paced evening, and to make everyone's lives easier, we offer pizza for dinner rather than expecting the students and volunteers to go get their own food (parking makes this a bit difficult). Please see below for the RSVP for this dinner. RSVP by Sept. 30 so that I can order enough pizza for everyone. We will also supply drinks (soda, water).
