Hello! Lots of information in this about upcoming events!
Thanks for the huge turnout at the last HBPA meeting! It was good to see all of you!
Senior Regional Orchestra auditions have been re-scheduled to October 24 at TALLWOOD HS!
Hickory Homecoming is this Friday! The band will perform after the football game. This will allow some of the traffic to dissipate.

Students who are on field crew should arrive at 8:45 am. Everyone else should arrive at 9:00 am. Please bring a lunch (12:00) and a snack for when we arrive at JMU. Our performance time is 7:30 pm. You will be able to visit concessions at 8:45. We will be able to watch about 6 bands perform at JMU! After awards, we will return to the buses.
