Thank You Graduation Band!

Many thanks to all of the band students who performed at the graduation ceremony yesterday, providing our 2016 graduates with music to process onto and off of the stage.  Our entire learning community truly appreciates your time and talents!  Thank you for your participation, and help in creating this special memory for our seniors.  Congratulations to our YHS Band senior class – love and best wishes to all as you begin your next adventures in life!


If you are applying for Community Service hours, the time-frame that you should document is from 11:30am – 3:30pm.  This would cover the time we used to pack the buses, set up and tear down, and our time at the ceremony.


Ice Cream Social

Mark your calendars!  The 15th Annual YHS Band Ice Cream Social will take place Thursday, August 25th from 6-8pm at YHS.  (FYI: Section Leaders and Officers, you will need to report at 4:30pm).

Section Leader Boot Camp

Officers and Section Leaders, mark your calendars!  We will meet on Thursday, September 1st 2016 (the freshmen-only first day of school). First, we will organize our traditional Freshmen welcome breakfast during period 1 (7:15-8:30).  Then, from 8:30-11:00, we will participate in a workshop to learn the skills needed to lead a successful sectional.

Summer Concerts

A wealth of world-class FREE concerts are offered each summer at West Point (including an AMAZING 4th of July Concert featuring the 1812 Overture with fire works and REAL CANNONS!)  For details, please visit www.westpointband.com.  If you’ve never been, the campus is gorgeous and so historically interesting.  A real gem of the Hudson Valley and worth a visit!
