2019-2020 PERFORMANCES

 

One of the most important aspects of the band program at Strayer is live musical performance.  We use performances as a way to assess our progress on the skills we learn throughout the school year and to bring joy to our lives and to the lives of the people in our community.

 

All performances are mandatory.  In the case of a significant conflict, please contact Mrs Urquhart as soon as possible. Acceptable conflicts include serious illness (enough to keep the student from attending school), significant family events (i.e. weddings, confirmations, graduations, funerals) and others as determined by Mrs Urquhart and the Strayer administrators.
