The Graduation performance is mandatory (a major portion of the exam) for most Symphonic Band members and all junior/sophomore Wind Ensemble members.  DRESS IS FORMAL:  Guys in tuxedos (no jackets); girls in black dresses.  It is very important that you let me know immediately if you will not be able to attend.  I realize that graduation is relatively late this year; I just want to make certain that we have all instrumental positions covered.

All school-owned instruments, mouthpieces, and other equipment must be returned to ADHS after graduation unless previous arrangements have been made with me, or the new marching band section leaders.

Two more items:

All students intending to participate in the 2018 Marching Band must COMPLETE THE ONLINE INTENT FORM by Friday, June 1st.

Our annual Spring Band Banquet will be Sunday, June 3 from 1:30-4:30pm.  All students who have performed in the class bands, winter guard, indoor percussion, and jazz ensemble will be recognized.  We will also honor all graduating seniors.  The banquet will conclude with an amazing slide show highlighting events from the entire year!!!

Thank you for everything that you have done to make this past year so successful!  To our graduating seniors - best wishes and “ya’ll come back and see us soon!”  To everyone else - have fun, get some rest, and don’t forget how to toot that horn, hit that drum, or spin that flag!  See most of you July 23rd!
