Elementary Band & Orchestra Recruitment Rally!

We are thrilled to offer beginning band and orchestra again this year!  Orchestra (violin, viola, cello, & bass) starts in 4th grade and Band (flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, & percussion) starts in 5th grade.

The Elementary Recruitment Rally for beginning band and orchestra students will take place this Thursday, September 2, starting at 6:30 p.m. at Alton High SchoolEnter the Auditorium-Gym entrance on the south side of the campus facing the softball fields and there will be signs directing you where to go. 

Please be mindful that masks and social distancing are required inside the building. 

The elementary band and orchestra teachers will present information to parents about our band and orchestra students program and the expectations of the students and the parents.  They will be available to answer any questions you may have. 

We will also have fliers from our local music stores with instrument rental information. 

Parents/Guardians may contact their building’s band or orchestra teacher for more information.
