As we enter into the back half of our season, we will start our competition circuit for the 2017-18 season. Please check out either the Calendar of Events or the Marching Band pages for our locations. We unfortunately can not provide performance times for any of these at this time, but continue watching for the emailed Blurbs as the events approach and our times will be communicated there.
Many thanks to everyone who helped make Tag Day a success. We surpassed our profits from last year and that is all thanks to the wonderful support of the Hilliard Davidson community who all graciously gave to the band members as they canvased the neighborhoods. We are so grateful to be in a place that values music and the arts and we thank every person who has or does support our endeavors.
You as well as family, friends, neighbors, and loved ones far and wide can still donate to band.
Directions can be found by clicking HERE.
Here are just a few of the things coming up in the immediate weeks ahead. For a more complete list of dates, times, and details, please see either our Calendar of Events or our Blurb page, both of which are updated regularly with the most current and relevant information.
Football Friday schedule can be found by using the Calendar of Events tab.

Many of our volunteer committees use this tool to organize and publicize volunteer shifts. The following links will be active for various amounts of time, but please know that you can sign-up for volunteering shifts many times throughout the season as different events come and go and as your schedule fluctuates. As of right now, here are the first few that are pressing as the season gets started. At the very least, please take a look at each of the opportunities as each has a variety of different jobs available. For example, if you do not like counting money but you’re happy to prepare hot dogs, look for those delineated as such in the Concession sign-up! Many links will be housed on our Booster Page as the season continues.

More information about each of the events will be made available via email in the coming weeks!
Your student should have brought home a 2017 Marching Band Handbook. Please read this thoroughly and let us know if there are any concerns. The most important portion of this is the attendance regulations. Please make every effort to mark your calendars NOW with our dates so that there are no unexpected conflicts. We have provided a section for you to notify us of any known conflicts on the signature page. We appreciate knowing about absences or accommodations well in advance. Please have this signed and returned to the band directors by next Friday, August 11th
Congratulations to the following students for receiving the Handshue Scholarship, which provides funds to help offset the costs of private music lessons. These students applied and were selected based upon their service to the band, level of need, and materials provided through the application process. Thank you to all who applied and our sincerest congratulations to:
Lexi Garvey, Junior
Paige Kingsley, Freshman
Tristan Miller, Freshman
Our Calendar of Events has been updated with the events for the remainder of the year and some of the dates for next fall. Please take a moment to mark your calendars and come support the band. Also, please check back frequently as we will continue to make this calendar as comprehensive as we can. Events such as all our Concert Band concerts, Booster Meetings, and other band related activities will be updated as that information becomes known.
