Welcome to the 2011-2012 Season


Regular rehearsals for this season will begin on Friday, September 30th, 3:45-5:45pm at John Adams Middle School (JAMS).  Students should report to Rm. 26 to find out which room they will be starting in for the first half of rehearsal.  We are excited to finally start making music!!!
