Welcome Back!

Time to face the music. The 2015-2016 school year will be off and running for all students at GHS on Tuesday Sept. 1st. The 9th graders have their sneak-peek on Monday the 30th. The most important thing for you to know right now is simple. Be prepared. Be prepared to play music. How can you be prepared?
  • Have your instrument on Tuesday 9/1
  • Have your iPad charged and ready to go
  • Have your accessories on the ready (ie. reeds, valve oil, neck straps, etc.)
  • Review our website
    • Check the calendar
    • Find your music
    • Search through the resources tab
  • Get involved with GHS PEP!
You will find some of these things on the calendar, but I wanted to draw your attention to some firsts:
  • First GHS PEP! game is on Friday September 11th 7pm
  • First performance for the Concert Band is the Costume Concert Wednesday October 28th 7pm
  • GHS PEP! rehearsals will be on Tues. and Thurs. 2-3pm. First rehearsal for GHS PEP! will be on Tuesday Sept. 1st.
  • GHS will again host the CDMMEA Central District auditions on Saturday November 14th
You will receive more information as the school year gets underway. Please check in with our website on a regular basis or follow the site through your email. Most information from this site will be posted to Twitter @graftonBand.

If any student is interested in doubling on another instrument (we are specifically looking for Tuba, F Horn, Bassoon, Baritone Horn, Trombone) please let me know.
