Important Update, September 7th, 2017

Good morning,

I am very sorry to inform you the Celebration of Bands scheduled for September 30 has been cancelled this year. Many of the neighboring districts have restrictions in place for the Jewish holiday and we just could not attract enough bands because of this. The staff and I are in talks to possibly schedule a makeup competition on the night of September 23 so the band gets the opportunity to compete this month. Thanks to all for your efforts and for helping make our marching band the awesome experience it is.

Adam L. Tucker
Director of Bands – SAHS


Following on here, I would like to send a special THANK YOU to our COB committee, who has worked so hard to plan this event. Your efforts are much appreciated, and you will be pros for next year’s show! The BRBB hopes to reschedule the senior recognition portions of the COB show, and we will be in touch with more info as it becomes available.

Thanks to all for your support and understanding.
