UPCOMING STUDENT MUSIC WORKSHOP IN ALPHARETTA

The city of Alpharetta is hosting a student workshop in June that provides high schoolers with an opportunity to learn from top music faculty from institutions all over the country. Working with this line-up of top professionals, students will benefit from hands-on experience in rehearsal while preparing several new works. They’ll also have the opportunity to discuss contemporary performance techniques, college preparation and more with our artist faculty.


Participating students will have the opportunity to perform alongside faculty at a final concert on Sunday, June 20 (4:30-5:30 PM). Check it out! All instruments are welcome.

BOYS SCOUTS AND THE BAND

Garrett Burch is on the last step of his journey to Eagle Scout, his Eagle Scout project. He has found an incredible project that combines his two passions: Scouts and marching band! Garrett has discussed the project with Mr. Moon and has offered to build rolling music shelves to store all of the band’s sheet music at Roswell High School. It’s going to be a great addition to our band room!


This link will allow you to send him words of encouragement and funds to help him along. Thank you for supporting Garrett!
