It’s band festival time!

As a marching band, we really love supporting our school teams! We love going to all of the games and helping to build school spirit. Have you ever wondered what a football game would look like if it were made up of just the bands? Well, that’s what a band festival is!

This weekend, we have our first band festival across town at Hempfield Area High School. The festival begins at 7 PM. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for senior citizens and students. The concession stands will open at 5:30 for early fans. Here is the lineup:

For both festivals, students will report to the GSHS Band Room at 2 PM. We will go outside and practice from 2-4 PM, then the students will eat dinner. We do not provide dinner for the students, so each student needs to make arrangements for food – either something from home or delivery is OK. We will load the truck/buses and depart for the festival after dinner.

If you have any questions about either festival, please fill out the contact form below and we will get back to you ASAP!
