Pops in the Park – Spring Band Concert



Our spring concert is scheduled for April 26, 6 PM at Veterans Park. We will have Chik-Fil-A on available for purchase, so plan on eating dinner with us!


Bring a lawn chair, picnic blanket and enjoy an evening of great food and fun music in the Park! There is no charge for admission. The concert will be fast-paced and family-friendly! Like our event on Facebook and spread the word!


We are partnering with T3 Spain Park – a student-led campus organization – to raise funds to fight world-hunger.  Our goal is to raise $2,000.00 – enabling us to feed 4,000 hungry children. Consider making a donation at the event!


I will need a crew of students and parent volunteers willing to move equipment and setup for the concert venue beginning @ 3:45.  >>SIGN UP HERE TO ASSIST WITH SETUP and/or BREAKDOWN<<  Many hands make quick work!!!

Our 2018 Band Banquet is May 1, 6 PM held at Embassy Suite, HWY 150, Hoover, AL.  The banquet will begin with dinner @ 6 PM followed by our special awards and recognition.


You are invited to create a “Senior Display” for this event. There are tons of ideas for displays of this nature online (try pinterest!).  Senior students will be allowed a 3 foot wide x 30 inches deep table space at the band banquet. There is access to power outlets in most of the spaces (you must provide your own extension cords!).

Please let us know if you plan to set up a Senior Display by completing this short form.  We will have your spot reserved and labeled inside the banquet space.
