We are currently in need of volunteers for our Solo and Ensemble Festival on Thursday, February 10th. Please click the link below in order to get signed up!
Thank you! We appreciate your help and support!
Families are encouraged to attend our Solo and Ensemble Festival next Thursday evening. The event will be held within our music wing from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM.
Note for Perry Band Olympics: Due to the vast majority of students not wanting to stay at Perry the whole day, we do NOT take a bus to this event; families are responsible for getting students to Perry and back. Let us know if you need assistance working out a carpool, or if other assistance is needed. We can help problem-solve along the way. Please check the schedule attached above and arrive approximately 1 hour prior to your assigned time.
