2015 GALA - October 16th

If you've not already heard, we're hosting our 2nd annual GALA at the Infinite Energy Center (formerly Gwinnett Center) on Friday, October 16.  Find out more information on how you can purchase tickets or help us spread the word by visiting and sharing this website.  There's nothing like Vegas Baby, but we'll make sure you'll have fun times!

Kroger Rewards Fund Raiser


The Band has partnered up with Kroger and all you have to do is shop there.  But not just you, any family member in the country who shops at Kroger can help our program simply by registering their Plus Card and indicating our Program as a beneficiary.  Please read the letter below for directions on how this fund raiser will benefit out program beyond just our own community!

IF YOU ENROLLED BEFORE AUGUST 1, 2015, Kroger requires that you register again.  It will only take a few minutes but please sign up and encourage your friends and family all over the country to help pledge their support to our program.  It does not take away from their points in any way so help spread the word!


Wind Symphony Invited to Perform

This year, our Wind Symphony has been extended an invitation to perform in the Bailey Center on the campus of Kennesaw State University in February 2016.  The Bailey Center, while on a smaller scale, was modeled after Carnegie Hall and is considered one of the premiere acoustical performance halls in the state and Southeastern United States.  This is a wonderful honor for our program as only a handful of bands are selected each year.  This means that our students will not only give a concert performance before a panel of nationally known adjudicators in an outstanding venue, but will also receive additional masterclass instruction from some of the finest musicians around.  We were selected after having submitted unedited recordings from previous years and will work to make sure we continue to represent our school and community with pride!

I am awaiting final information (performance date and time) but please be sure to come out and hear the students perform in what will be a wonderful opportunity for our program.  So please congratulate all the students in our program both past and present because this is the culmination of years of work that has given us the opportunity!

Another way in which our program is STEPping Up.  Please continue to show your support and encourage your students to work hard so that we can continue to have invitations and opportunities to perform with our Concert, Marching, Jazz and Winter Programs!

Difference Between March/Spin a Thon and Sponsors

We have received several questions regarding the difference between the march-a-thon/spin-a-thon and GALA requirements. Hopefully this will help answer these questions.
