Harrison Band Announcements

Congratulations to all the band students who participated in the Benson/Central Area Concert and the Harrison Spring Concert!  You truly "set the standard" for this performance! I am so proud of the progress each and every one of you have made this year! 

As we finish up the school year please know that all band students should return any OPS music, Sound Innovations books and/or instruments by the end of the day on Monday, May 21st. Students are welcome to leave their instruments at school after the spring concert. May 21st will also be our End of the Year Band Celebration! 

 The last practice check is also scheduled for Monday, May 21st.
