Bandtober 2022

Fabulous concerts last night! I'm always blown away by the skill level of our kids and the opportunities our kids have at NHS. Watching the NHS Wind Ensemble perform with the University of Indianapolis Wind Ensemble was a treat! I told my kids when we got home - you are getting a college level music education right here at Noblesville High School!

THANK YOU to everyone who stepped up to help us host one of the most incredible Black & Gold Marching Invitationals EVER! SO many compliments about our gracious band parents! Our guests left feeling welcomed and wanting to come back! 🖤💛

I know "fall break" is coming up and I do hope each of you are able to take a little time to rest and recoup, BUT parent to parent.... students missing rehearsals is a HUGE deal this time of year. Period. The directors will be making a lot of changes in the coming weeks as we begin our run in the ISSMA State Contest. Missing rehearsals hurts the entire band. We are in this together!!! Together we CAN do this!
