All the hard work in the sun has paid off. We are so proud of these kids for reaching this level of excellence that is a result of disciplined hard work, talented directors and staff and the dedicated support of parents. This has been an exercise in unity. Many people working as one, and the results have been amazing. The band is in search of more members. If you ask these kids if they would do it again they would say “in a heartbeat!” You will love it! And you will have friends for life.
