I want to invite everyone out to the Imogen Theater this Friday night at 5pm for another performance by our own Milton High jazz band. We will be performing outside the theater for the opening of the children's hospital festival of trees. If you missed us welcoming Santa to Cordova mall a couple weeks ago, here is another chance to hear us.
The 42nd Annual Southeastern United States Concert Band Clinic and HONOR BANDS will be held February 5 - 7, 2015 on the Troy University campus in Troy, Alabama.

Everyone is invited to come out to Cordova Mall tonight to welcome Santa Claus to town! The Jazz band will perform outside the mall, in between World Market and the mall entrance at 6pm.
