December Concert- December 20th, 2017

We are thrilled to present to you our Winter Concert this week. Please make sure that you have read the CONCERT ATTIRE information below. A photographer from VIP will be present at our concert to take pictures for the yearbook and we want our students to look their best.


This concert is truly the culminating event of first semester. Our students have been working very hard over the past two months to prepare this concert for you and we hope that you can attend.


Our concert will feature the music of Journey, Chicago, Glenn Miller and many more!


You also don't want to miss the finale performance featuring all 140 members of the Red Raider Band.

Pep Band

The Wauwatosa East Red Raider Pep Band performs at six Basketball Pep Bands throughout the Boys and Girls Varsity season. To lower the commitment for our students we have divided the band in to three groups.


Each 'band' (Red, White, Black) attends two pep band performances.

Report time for all games is 6:45pm, in the band room.

Band Assignment

Pep Band Schedule


Students- If you are unable to attend a game it is your job to find a person that plays the same instrument to switch with you. Switches must be communicated to Mrs. Lato. Switches can only occur because of a conflict.


Students can attend more than their scheduled pep bands, for each additional pep band attended students will receive 25 points towards their Varsity letter. Attendance is taken at every game at the beginning and during halftime. You must be seated with the band and stay through 3rd quarter to receive credit for the performance.


EXTRA PEP BAND (Band Points) OPPORTUNITY!

January 25th for the HOCKEY game.

Sign-up posted outside the band room. Space is limited!!

We need balanced instrumentation to perform.
