Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be in marching band/concert band?
Yes. Band is a full year commitment. In order to participate in marching band, you must be in concert band in the spring and vice versa. Exceptions such as athletes that have football practice at the same time as marching band are made. However, enrollment in the class is necessary. We can work it out!
