Alumni Band

The Alumni Band started in 2010 and is open to former band students of all ages and abilities.

Retired band director, Dale Wilson generally organizes two sessions a year. The first is in the spring with the goal to perform on Mother’s Day in Playfair Park, and the second is in the fall for a drop-in session. Rehearsals are a lot of fun so dust off your instrument and play with us!

All skill levels are welcome – would love to see new and returning alumni band members! Please spread the word to other alumni who may be interested.
