 Band Parents, Students, and Staff,

     I am very excited to start the 2021 season.  Below you will find links to a lot of very important information regarding the weeks ahead.  Please take some time to watch the 2021 Virtual Orientation video and complete the Online Commitment Form.  Students, please involve your parents in this process, as much of the information is relevant for band students AND band parents. Please be in touch with any questions you might have.  Otherwise, I very much look forward to seeing you at our first rehearsal, which will begin in the OCHS auditorium at 8am on Monday, July 26th

 

2021 Virtual Marching Band Orientation

Please watch the orientation video with your parents and then complete the Online Commitment Form.  The orientation video will take the place of the in-person event, originally scheduled for 7/22.  We will NOT have an in-person marching band orientation this year.  Please be in touch with any questions you have about the 2021 marching band season.

"My favorite opportunity given to me by the Fine Arts Program would be the enhanced ability to define and express myself."

Over the last few weeks students from all over the South Central Region of Virginia, which stretches from Richmond to Bristol, have submitted their audition tapes with the hopes of being named a member of the 2020 Senior Regional Orchestra.  This year, Senior Maggie Russell (Trombone) and Sophomore Hailee Perdue (French Horn) were both honored with this selection.  Congratulations to Maggie and Hailee on this incredible accomplishment.
