The band program is thriving with 50+ students in Grade 5 Band and 100+ students in Concert Band. Over the past several years our bands have participated in the MICCA festival and have been awarded Gold and Silver ratings. We also have several students audition and get accepted into the Central Districts festival ensembles every year. The concert band has performed in many locations such as Mystic Seaport, Easton's Beach in Rhode Island, aboard the Mount Washington on Lake Winnipesaukee, and at the Music In the Parks Festival in Hershey PA where they received the three top awards in their division.
