The Sandalwood Band has continued its amazing growth. In the fall of 2015, the Sandalwood Band took the field with only about 40 musicians. This fall, we expect to march 150+ students. It is a very exciting time in the band program. To give you some perspective, consider the following:


Percussion—11 students in 2015, this year 24

Sousaphones- 2 students in 2015, this year 12

Low Brass-  7 students in 2015, this year 21

Colorguard- 8 students in 2015, this year 24+


The band program is self funded and this growth has meant we have to find instruments and equipment for the students. Our students have limited access to financial resources. Without your help, we may have to tell students they cannot march because we do not have an instrument for them or the equipment they need to participate.  So donate what you can, even if it cannot cover the entire cost. Every little bit helps!
