We are incredibly grateful for the service of Mr. Holzer as the inaugural band director and the amazing work of the band team of Dr. Parks, Mr. Schaul, Mr. Arjuna, and Ms. Potter. They have already built a reputation of a high quality band program. We know Ms. Wykoff has a great team and amazing students to lead in 2017-18.
