Announcements and News

Message from the Directors

Lots of great things are happening for the Norcross Bands! There have been many in-person rehearsals as all are preparing for different performances, and the kids sound awesome!

We are also about to kick out the Winter Guard Season! Information is below, but we wanted to introduce Emily Milovsky, our new Guard Director! She has been our rehearsal tech for the last two seasons, so we are incredibly excited for her to step into this new role. She will be joined by Daniella Greer as our Guard Tech.

We are also approaching All-State Season, so please make sure if your child is planning on auditioning, that they are working through scales and their etude. The cost for auditioning is $30 and that must be turned into Mr. Newman by Friday, November 20.

This Friday, we will be having our Marching Band Senior Night. This will occur before the game, and we will perform the show at half time.

Please be prepared for a very possible HOME playoff game the day after Thanksgiving. While we are unsure if it will be Home or Away, we are feeling very confident that there will be a playoff game, so please plan accordingly.

We hope you all are doing well and are staying safe and healthy.
