The following are important announcements regarding the NHS Band for the week of 9/18/2017.

Monday – September 18, 2017

Dr. Alexander will be in the band room following rehearsal to work with students interested in learning more about jazz improvisation. His session will be from 4:30PM-5:30PM.

Tuesday – September 19, 2017

Our Tuesday night rehearsal from 6PM-9PM will be at Rock Hill School District 3 Stadium on Cherry Rd. Wind and percussion students should wear a white shirt, their black marching shoes, and marching helmet. Colorguard, please wear a purple shirt. This is a super important rehearsal – as being in the stadium allows us a new perspective and performance environment. We need 100% attendance at this important rehearsal!

Chick-Fil-A on Cherry Rd. is hosting another Spirit Day for the NHS Purple Regiment. A part of their profit will be donated back to the band. #eatmorechicken
