April is nearly over, which means that it is nearly time to wrap up the 2022-2023 school year. We have four remaining performances!
On Sunday, May 14th, the augmented brass quintet (which includes a couple of percussionists and a couple of woodwinds) perform at the Richland County High School 2023 Graduation Ceremony, which takes place in the Ron Herrin Gym. The graduation ceremony is from 3-5 pm. The call-time for graduation is 2 pm in the band room. The attire for the venue is concert black-and-whites (dresses and tuxedos). Only eight students are involved in this performance.
Monday, May 29th is Memorial Day. Combined members from the Symphonic Band, the Honors Wind Ensemble, and the drumline are involved in the parade and ceremony in Olney, as well as the ceremony in Noble. You may find more details pertaining to the two events by clicking HERE.
