I intended to send a marching band wrap-up email two weeks ago. Unfortunately, the
transition to Concert Band snuck up quickly and its been a marathon ever since. Please accept my apologies for the delay.
Marching Band 2018 - Wrap-Up
Congratulations to our students, parents, community members, and marching band staff for another successful season! From day one on July 16th, we worked hard in all aspects of the program; from student leadership to performance, from volunteerism to fundraising, and finally, from Pregame to Show 5.
The success of the members of the Grandview Heights Marching Band is due in large part to the support received from the officers, committee chairs, volunteers, and members of the Band Parent Association. The band staff and BPA officers wish to thank the following for their continued volunteerism:
