Concert band is in full swing!  The students are working hard on their chamber music (groups of 3 to 6 students) for OMEA Solo and Ensemble and we are making great strides in our concert bands!  Everyone knows that next year's marching band is defined by the steps the students take in concert band the year before.  Our students that apply themselves through private lessons (see below) and the students who are diligent in their concert band music checks will help the band the most next year on the marching field.
