Hi SP Band Family,

So much is going on right now in our state, in our nation, and across the world. Please stay safe, stay well, and be prayerful for those that are affected.

Several band-related activities have been affected by the ongoing coronavirus situation.

  • Winterguard competitive season has been cancelled moving forward.  We are very proud of the growth of the group and are saddened that they cannot complete their season.

  • Music Performance Assessment has been cancelled. The instrumentalists have worked very diligently to prepare two challenging programs.  I am so proud of their hard work and dedication. The band room was filled with some beautiful sounds this week as we put our final touches on the program.  They still have a few more concert opportunities planned for the spring, and I’m excited for you to hear them! Students who have already submitted payment for the charter buses will receive a full refund next week.

  • The Alabama Bandmasters Association is still working on All-State Solo and the All-State Festival.  They hope to have information out about that by the first of the week.

  • At this time we are still planning to hold our annual Band Banquet. Click here for very important Band Banquet information.  Parents of Senior Band Students, please take special note!
