Concert Band Assessment

 On Friday, March 13th and  Saturday, March 14th L.C. Bird and the Skyhawk Band Program will host the upcoming Concert Band Assessment.   

 Approximately 40 or more bands with easily 3,000 kids will come to Bird to perform for judges for their State Concert Band Assessment.  The magnitude of this event can be mind boggling when you sit down and view it as a whole.  However, we successfully pull it off every year because of the volunteer help from our parents and kids. Below are the links to the Sign Up Genius for Donations and for Volunteers. 

Donations – please send in by  Friday, March 6
