Students are asked to wear their band uniforms. Everyone is welcome to attend. This meeting will take place at the Canal Street school board building, a.k.a. the old Milton High School building.
Drum Major Audition Clinic - This Friday, we will hold the first of a few drum major audition clinics. If you plan to audition for drum major for next year, this will be a good start to know how the process works. This is not required for the audition.
