Steller Band Wants YOU!
YES! We are back in person this school year. We need your participation.
- Meet in the first hour.
- Open to ALL Steller students. We prefer you to have at least one year of experience with traditional band setting, but we can work with you IF you know how to read music. Contact me ASAP. We do have some instruments for you to rent.
- You can qualify for state-level competitions, like All-State (fall) and state solo/ensemble (spring). Last year, we sent two students to All-State, two students to All-Northwest, and five students to the state solo/ensemble contest. Furthermore, two students made the command performance awards, which is one of the highest honors that high school musicians in Alaska can achieve.
- We plan to take an overnight trip to attend the Aurora Music Festival in April (tentative). It is a regional music festival for small schools mainly from the interior Alaska. Cordova will be the host.
- We have done very well for the band competition during the Aurora Music Festival. We were placed 2nd (2018) and 3rd (2019). We were unable to attend the festival for last two years because of the pandemic.
- Plan to have four school concerts (one in each semester).
- Have grown in enrollment. We are getting larger and larger in size.
- And lots and lots more!
Please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions or comments.
I am looking forward to this great school year!
