Dear Band Family, I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend! We had a great turnout and slate of performances this past Saturday at our HC Solo and Ensemble Recital Day! In addition to our evaluators, I was very impressed with the professionalism and performance quality our students displayed! Well done!
