Thank you to Mr. Jindrich and the Temple High School Band for their invitation to allow us to perform at the Carroll County School Performing Arts Center.  The venue is beautiful and it allowed us the opportunity to have a dry run of our music in the atmosphere that we will perform in for evaluation in a couple of weeks.

All 3 bands performed well last Thursday evening and received great feedback from our adjudicators.  Comments were shared in class and via Google Classroom so that we can continue to prepare for Large Group Performance Evaluations (Festival).


Festival will be hosted at the Carroll County PAC on March 11-12, 2019.  Admission is free and open to the public.  I hope that you will mark your calendars and plan on supporting our band students!

Please congratulate the following students for making All-State: Andrew Stagliano, principal baritone saxophone; Kelley Ozier, euphonium; and Taylor Berry, trombone (alternate).  They practiced extensively to earn this honor and I look forward to their performance next weekend in Athens, GA at the Classic Center.

Parents will travel with their child to Athens for this event.  If you need more information, please contact Mr. Carr.


Cheers to a great week!
