FCS Marching Band Exhibition THIS WEEK!

The 43rd Annual Fulton County Schools Marching Band Exhibition is THIS Saturday September 23, 2017 at Cambridge High School.  Tickets for this event will be on sale at the gate for $5.00, free for children under 5. To save time, tickets can also be purchased in advance ONLINE.  

ALL Fulton County High School Bands will be featured in performance.  This is an opportunity to perform in front of a qualified adjudication panel for comments only, giving us a fresh set of ideas to work on moving forward as we continue to build our show.  For Alpharetta Band it is an all-day event, please view / download the schedule HERE.

THIS WEEK IS CATCH-UP WEEK.  We've missed several regular rehearsals so far this fall due to weather, so we're behind.  We have regular rehearsals scheduled Tuesday, Thursday, plus Friday and Saturday this week.  Friday is from 4-7pm in Raider stadium, then we go home (no FB game).  Saturday is based on the published schedule.

Parents, please plan to come out and support YOUR Raider Band this Saturday evening.  Our students are doing an amazing job this year!

Change...is inevitable!

Change is inveitable, growth is optional!  Goals in concrete, plans in sand....  

Due to a schedule conflict this year, the AHS Homecoming game has been moved from September 29th to October 13th (the same night as Pink Out).  This also moves the Homecoming Dance to Saturday October 14th.   In response, we've moved our regional Marching Band competition from Saturday October 14th (to avoid the conflict with the HC Dance) to Saturday November 4th.  We'll be performing at the White Columns Marching Band Invitational hosted by Milton High School.  This should also allow us to pull in a good home-crowd!!  Please mark your calendars accordingly and plan to come out and support our Marching Raiders at their final 2017 performance!
