Memorial Day Ceremony

Volunteer opportunity for band members interested in playing at Memorial Day Ceremony.  
Monday, 5/27, 9am (7:30am Call Time)  
  • Sign up HERE
  • This is an optional event but HIGHLY encouraged.  Each year, the band participates in the ceremony held at St. Lucas Church.  It is outdoors "on the green" and around 200-300 spectators are in the audience.  Many veterans and active military will be in attendance.  The band will be featured before the ceremony begins and three times throughout the ceremony.  The whole thing takes two hours of your time and is a great and meaningful way to kick off Memorial Day.  This is one of the very best ways that we can "give back" as musicians.  Graduating Seniors---I hope you will plan on participating too!!!
