You can also get more festival information at their homepage: Jazz in the Meadows or on Facebook by joining their group: Jazz in the Meadows Fans. I also hope to be Tweeting our day's activities.

This Saturday, February 16 will be a busy one for the band program. The Concert Band will be performing at St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights for the 31st annual State of the Art Band Competition. This event is always special, featuring some of the best bands in the area. The band performs FIRST at 8:30 a.m. We're going to set the bar high, so please come out and show your support. 

Later that day, we will return to perform for the home basketball game. The game time is at 6 (not 7:30), so students need to BE ON STAGE READY TO PLAY BY 5:30. If you come at the usual time you will be very late!
