Davidson Band

Summer Fun!

There are so many opportunities for students to continue playing throughout the summer.  Many of these are hosted on college campuses and offer instruction from the faculty and professors of these institutions, ensuring the quality of learning and music making students receive.

If this is of any interest to you, please visit our Performance Opportunities page, found using the menu tab on the left side of this webpage.

Have a great summer- please look at our calendar so you know when our July 4th and Band camp dates are!  See you then.

Superhero 5K

We had a FANTASTIC event this year and that is thanks to all those who helped organize, manage, fundraise, advertise, and run the event.  It takes many months and hours of planning to get an event like this to be as successful as ours and we are so grateful to everyone for their work.

Stay tuned for details about next year’s event and how you can get involved!  Please reach out if you have ideas, feedback, or want to express interest in helping for future races.  We are always eager to improve and love welcoming new faces into our community.

2018-19 Forms- Medical and Summer Attendance

**Percussion, Color Guard, Athletes and all other Non-Marchers- you DO NOT need to complete the Summer Attendance Form, but you DO need to complete the Medical Form. ** 

Please take time to complete these forms CAREFULLY.  The information you provide within these forms is extremely important.  We also ask that at this time, you mark your family calendars thoroughly with all the dates and times listed in the Summer Attendance form.  We will do everything we can to work with any issues, but early notice is the key to resolving these scheduling conflicts successfully.  Please be completely honest and forthcoming with us as you complete this form and again, we will make accommodations as we are able.
These are due by May 9th at midnight.

Handshue Scholarship

The Handshue Lesson Scholarship was established in 2015 as a way to honor the dedication of Dave and Carol Handshue.  The pair served on the band staff for Hilliard City Schools for over 20 years giving tirelessly of their time and energy to help build the outstanding program that we all enjoy today.  They were both passionate about private lessons, providing affordable lessons to interested students for years.  We are excited for the expansion of this scholarship while continuing to honor these two wonderful educators.

 The Handshue Scholarship has historically been given to several deserving high school students to alleviate the financial burden of private instrumental music lessons.  This year, have dramatically expanded the program to award 30 scholarships, 10 at each of the three schools: Davidson, Weaver, and Tharp.

This year’s recipients at Davidson High School are:

Aidan Karman

Courtney Elmer

Ethan Andujar

Ian McSurdy

Leo Hamric

Michael Canary

Myles Crawford

Nina Dillahunt

Taylor Koons

Victoria Mateos
