Director’s Address

Congratulations on finishing two weeks of band camp, Royal Alliance! Band camp was a resounding success. For those of you unable to enjoy the concluding preview concert, you’ll be pleased to know that the marching band is well on their way to beginning an exciting marching season. The students are able to march and play the entire first movement, in addition to substantial quality work they have put into the parade march. I am excited to be involved with such an incredibly hard working group of students. That being said, there is still plenty of work to do!

It is with great excitement that I announce that despite our numbers, we will be competing up a class this year in the 2A division. This is a testament to my belief that the students will rise far above the challenge.

Keep up the hard work, Royal Alliance!
