Are you a local musician that is always looking for playing opportunities? Are you a former AHS band member that wishes that band never ended? We are looking for anyone that wants to come join the band to play for local cruise ship departures. We play pep band tunes during the final hour before the ship pulls away. The port pays the band a small stipend to do this so it is a fundraiser for the band and the kids. We will have a few practices before the first gig, so plenty of opportunity to get your chops back if needed. If you are interested, please contact Band Booster president Kathleen Strecker at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s make some music!
Scores from the Astoria Winter Showcase
We had a great show on Saturday! Mother Nature tried to rain on our parade, but the surprise for her is that it was an indoor event. Hope you made it out to see the great groups that competed.
Experience the rhythm and artistry of percussion and colorguard ensembles from throughout the northwest, including the premier northwest WGI World Class Oregon Crusaders Indoor drumline and the Oregon Crusaders Independent colorguard.
Tickets $10 available at the door. Seniors and students with any current student ID are $8. Children under 2 sitting in a parent’s lap are free.
Saturday March 8th. Beginning at 11:00am
