DETAILS: The Band Jamboree is a culminating event for the District’s bands, color guards, pep and cheer squads and drill teams as the football season concludes and many athletic activities move indoors for the winter. The Jamboree also gives the schools the opportunity to raise funds for their music and cheer programs. The event also benefits the District Instrumental Music Program, providing funding to cover the guest conductor fee for the District Honor Band Program in the spring and the purchase of music for this concert. Tickets are $8. For information, call (562) 698-8121, ext. 3077.

Coverage and/or inclusion of this event in your calendar of events is welcome and greatly appreciated.
