Our award-winning All Saints school band was founded over 40 years ago by its current director Mr. Ward. Students in grades 4-8 are eligible to join the band and receive instrumental lessons during the school day and after school on Tuesday afternoons. All Saints offers both a beginner band and advanced band. Due to the associated costs, there are additional fees to participate in band.
Beginning Band members select between the clarinet, drum, flute, saxophone, trombone and trumpet. Additional larger-scale instruments are added in Advanced Band. Members of Advanced Band typically have at least one year of instruction.
The school band competes in the Annual Diocesan Band Festival, the “Music in the Park” festival program, and performs an annual winter and spring concert. Our school band has received Superior ratings at Festival for 39 straight years in a row, and twice has received the highest point award even surpassing high school bands in the competition!
Please contact Mr. Ward at email@example.com for additional information about our program.
