Instrument Repair:

If your personal instrument is in need of maintenance/repair from marching season, please attend to this ASAP.  All students should have instruments in proper working condition (tuning slides that move, no tape holding things together, etc), along with all necessary equipment (reeds, ligatures, valve oil) throughout the concert season.

New Folder Cabinet!

Many thanks to Jim Castelucci for constructing a brand new (and badly needed) cabinet for band & orchestra folders!  This was a HUGE job — thank you, Mr. Castelucci!

All students should put folders in these slots, rather than in their lockers… this will prolong the life of the folders.  Slots will be labeled by ensemble soon.
