There are a few students that still need to fulfill their financial obligations from the beginning of the season – shirts, shoes, etc.   We will be contacting those students this week so that we can close those books.

And now…the FINAL part of the show is ready to be added: but we need YOUR help!

We are looking for younger siblings, cousins, family friends, etc that would be interested in being in a part of the marching band show for the last two weeks of the season!

Here’s the requirements:

  • They have to reside in the Phoenixville Area School District and be enrolled in either a district school or charter school.
  • They have to be available for the following events:
    • Rehearsal on November 3th (7pm-8pm)
    • Rehearsal on November 10th (6pm-7pm)
    • Cavalcade Championships (Nov 12th for part of rehearsal and obviously the show).
  • Ideally, we’re looking for children who are in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade.    The ultimate goal would be kids who are in the elementary band program too! 🙂

If you’re interested – or know someone who is – please contact me directly at

  6 performances in rehearsal, 2 performances in uniform.   Let’s kick this into high gear!
