We are so very proud of our bands!

A very special thanks to Associate Director Mr. Ira Jenkins for stepping in and running the show while Mr. Walsh is out on medical leave – he did a superb job! And thanks for our friend Dr. David Kehler of Kennesaw State University for stepping in at the last minute to conduct our Wind Ensemble.

This past Saturday our JV and Varsity winter guards competed at the Art in Motion winter guard competition at Harrison High School. Our JV team had another great performance which earned them a much higher score than their last performance 3rd place in their class. The Varsity team wowed the judges and audience with an outstanding performance which earned them 1st place of the day among all scholastic units. We are very proud of both teams and is looking forward to their continued success as they now prepare for national competition in Pensacola, Florida, in two weeks.

REMINDER:  Due to winter weather last weekend, the GA All State auditions for the state were cancelled by GMEA and moved to THIS WEEKEND (Saturday 1/14).  As a result we had to cancel our Winter Band Clinic here at AHS; we have 40+ band students who will be out of town taking the final audition.  This information was posted last week and has been discussed in classes all week.  This notice is only a reminder for those who might need confirmation that our clinic was indeed cancelled.
