Homecoming Game: FYI, at this game, we will perform our show AFTER the game due to the royalty ceremony at halftime. Therefore, pick up time will be a little later. This is on Friday, October 3rd.

October Evening Rehearsals: As scheduled, we move to only ONE evening rehearsal per week in October. Those dates are on Tuesday 10/7, Thursday 10/16, and Tuesday 10/21 . Also, please note that those rehearsal times change to 6pm to 9pm .
Playoff Football Games: The scheduling of these games have changed. The POSSIBLE playoff games will occur on the following Fridays: 10/24, 10/31, 11/7, and 11/14. We need to be ready to play any/all of these. However, we won’t know IF we are in it, or IF it is a home game until the week prior. Thank you for your flexibility.


We had a GREAT weekend! We took 2nd in our class in the prelims competition, I was expecting to take 2nd or 3rd. (There were 4 bands in each class)

We, then, placed 7th in finals competition, which is an open class format (meaning no class divisions, all bands in one big class). Knowing of all the competing bands, I had expected to come in 9th or 10th. The kids outdid themselves and I am so proud of them.

Way to go Titan Pride!
