DETAILS: The Band Jamboree is a culminating event marking the end of the band and color guard field show season. The Jamboree 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 spring and to purchase music for that concert. Tickets for adults are $8. Senior citizens and children under age 12 pay $5.

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