I would like to say THANK YOU in advance to each and every member, staff person, parent, friends, family, alumni, AHS faculty and administration and all who are associated with the AHS Band as we embark upon S&E Week. This week will provide so many opportunities for growth both musically and through service to our district.

The following information is detailed and will apply to each member within our program; check the schedule below for your performances and plan now for your shift times.

Come and take part in an awesome display of musicianship and dedication as we provide the setting for ourselves, our peers and colleagues of FBA District 8 to come and perform.
