BOA and the road through Quarterfinals…Itinerary!

Dear Band Family,

What a great weekend! I can’t really express in words the joy that accompanies seeing these students work so hard and accomplish personal and family goals one after the next! It was thrilling to see the students take the field on the national stage in Canton, OH for both preliminary and finals performances and then have an opportunity to celebrate with other band students from all over the eastern half of the country! This is truly a special group and they are pushing into territory we’ve been dreaming about for years! Congratulations to all on a job well done so far! Special thanks to all of the parents who have sacrificed their own personal time for our band family! These trips are only possible with a complete and total band family from the students to the staff to the parent organization! It is an honor to work with you daily! To recap the results of the Bands of America Canton Regional:
