After a fast and furious bidding war that went right up til the last minute, the GHBPA is pleased to congratulate Nichole Ferris, the successful winning bidder for the first ever silent auctioning of a private music performance from the GHHS Band. Nichole will work with Mr. Herrmann to identify a date next fall when she will welcome a group of 20-25 GHHS band members for a 20 minute concert at her home. Thanks for your support of our bands, Nichole, and enjoy the show!

That's OK! You may be more familiar with the Grandview Cake Walk, which has a loooooong and storied history. If you'd like to learn more about it's first seven decades of live, in-person fun, we've got you covered.
