Jazz Band Performs at Riverfest

Owen Valley Jazz performed at the first annual "Riverfest" festival held at Cooper Park in downtown Spencer on Saturday. The band played a set at 2:00 for approximately a half an hour. It was a busy Saturday for the Jazz kids who also had a 9-4 marching band rehearsal that day. We really appreciated having the opportunity to be a part of that event. Please contact us if you have an event in the future that you feel that we can participate in!

New School Year Ushers in Record Numbers

The Patriot Band and Guard began a new school year with a bang. The Jazz Band performed several times over the summer and one highlight was a performance at the first corporation teacher meeting of the year. The Marching Band sizzled on the black top over during band camp and pushed through a good portion of their competitive show "Monstrosity". As the school year began the program saw a large increase in band numbers, with 35 freshmen coming into the high school band class and over 70 new beginning band members. 7th-12th enrollment has surpassed 150 students for the first time in the past five years, with lots of room to grow!

Band Gears Up for First Game

Tomorrow is game day and the marching band as well as the advanced and intermediate concert bands are gearing up to perform. With a new focus on community performances the bands will be very active at games and parades this year. Report time is 6:00 with kick off at 7:00. Dress is Polos and Jeans, Go Patriots!
