Band Announcements

Coming this Fall to a football field near you......

In tribute to the "Air Capital of the World" and the women who took charge in the factories during WWII.

The VCHS Hornet Marching Band Presents...... 

 

Our military history is filled with heroes. America’s service men and women are recognizable to all around the would as a symbol of freedom.


But our greatest victories and preservation of freedom would not be possible if it was not for the American women that builds our military might. These “Rosie the Riveters” worked in the factories that supported our troops and ensured that we would be victorious. From the days of our Greatest Generation, we offer you an American Musical Journey showcasing one of America’s great cherished assets.
