SLHS Band Selected for National Concert Band Festival!
We are proud to announce that the SLHS Wind Ensemble has been selected to perform at the 2020 Music for All National Concert Band Festival in Indianapolis! Following a rigorous application and evaluation process, SLHS is one of just 16 ensembles selected from across the nation to perform on the main stage at this prestigious event. This is South Lakes' 4th time receiving this honor - the 3rd time under the direction of Grayson Fore.
With the event coming up in March, the band will immediately take on the task of raising the funds necessary to take the trip.
Selection to the National Concert Band Festival follows closely on the heels of the band's selection to another nationally-recognized event - the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade. In December 2017, 119 of our students traveled to Honolulu to honor veterans, represent our community and enjoy the trip of a lifetime! Our students had many amazing experiences - they stood on the deck of the USS Missouri - site of the Japanese surrender and performed a tribute concert at the site; gazed up at the names of those lost and peered down at their watery resting place at the USS Arizona memorial; hiked up Diamond Head to experience beautiful views of Honolulu below; enjoyed the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of Polynesian culture at the PCC; and swam in the Pacific Ocean and played on Waikiki Beach with some other best friends.

Annual Band Booster Tag Day Set for Saturday, September 7!
On Saturday, September 7th, band members will go door to door asking for community support through donations to the SLHS Band Boosters. This is the Band Boosters' single most important fundraiser of the year, providing financial support for new instruments, new uniforms, transportation, instructional support and more. Thanks to the community's generous support last year, the Band Boosters made a significant investment in new instruments, including new Dynasty Drums for marching band, bassoons, a baritone saxophone, and more! This year, Tag Day proceeds will help cover the cost of the awesome marching band uniforms you'll see on the field this fall, subsidize the band's trips to Lynchburg to compete in the Virginia State Marching Band Championships and Indianapolis to perform in the National Concert Band Festival, and address other needs of our growing band program.
Watch for band students in the community on the 7th! If we miss you, don't worry! The band accepts donations year round. Click here to donate through Paypal, or send your checks to:
