Week of April 17th
Community and Alumni Marching Band
EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT: Park High Band Alumni, family and friends - we are happy to announce registration to participate in the 2017 PHS Alumni Band for the Livingston 2nd of July Parade is now open! Mr. Stannard has coordinated with The Livingston Chamber of Commerce to have the band appear at this great towns tradition!
Alumni band members from 2017 all the way back will perform with a handful of current HS students, and some fun music to share with the community - it's a great way to enjoy a passion you used to share or perhaps still do with music and community. No time like the 2nd of July Parade could be a better atmosphere for our wonderful alumni to gather for a short period to reminisce.
We don't expect any judges on the route, so if your marching or horn angles are a little rusty, rest your worries now! And yes drumline, brass and woodwinds are all included.

School instruments are provided for all of those who are in need: first registered, first served.
What a great weekend to share together. We look forward to seeing you all. Friends, family and all are welcome to perform or attend. Maps, parking information, and such will be sent out to all registered participants on June 26th.
