Band Bulletin #6: 9/18-22 — HOMECOMING

CONGRATULATIONS on a peak performance of our 80’s Show at the NRHS Band Festival on Saturday night… your energy and sound were outstanding!  We received a great deal of positive feedback.

We are now starting to see what The 2017 Marching Bees are truly capable of… let’s keep it going!

Now, we turn our attention to our Homecoming and American Tribute shows… We will put our 80’s show on the shelf for a couple of weeks, and bring it back for the OSU Buckeye Invitational on 10/14!  More info to come.
