BAND CHANGES LIVES! Help Us Continue to Play Strong


Help Us Continue to Play Strong

Our band program depends on parental support from our entire band family. Who is the band family? Concert bands, indoor drumline, jazz band, marching band, and color guard all encompass our musical family. The success of Roswell’s band programs is due to our volunteer base.

Band programs change the lives of hundreds of students every year, and it is our volunteer base that keeps us playing and performing strong. Having a strong parent volunteer base is not only important to our performers, but it is a family support system to our volunteers also. Band family friendships last a lifetime.

Roswell High School band boosters are here to support the band. Our goal is to provide financial assistance through fundraising and logistical support for all the ensembles within the band program.

Big or small, a lot or a little, any and all, help with the band boosters is always needed and appreciated.

Please use the link below to tell us about your interests and abilities that can benefit the band program. It only takes a minute. Do it today!



You can find minutes and agendas on our website.

PLAN AHEAD. Our next board meeting will be on November 11, 2020 at 8pm in the Media Center. All RHS band members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
