Congratulations and upcoming schedule!

Dear HC Band Family,

I hope all are well!  First, congratulations to all of our students involved as we had a wonderful few weeks concluding with an outstanding wind ensemble performance last Thursday and all-state band performances on Friday and Saturday at the annual KMEA conference in Louisville!  Our students performed beautifully all week in all of the various ensembles and our guest conductor with the wind ensemble, Tim Reynish was thrilled to be a part of the experience!  I know the staff learned as much as the students and we are grateful for the opportunity.  I am very thankful to have the privilege and honor of working with such an outstanding group of students and parents in all areas of our program!  We have more exciting opportunities approaching in the near future so please stay involved and up to date on the band calendar at www.henryclayband.org
