Band Announcements


The WSU Band Department has placed all of their All-State videos on one easy to access page. We hope this proves to be a valuable resource for your students as they prepare their All-State auditions! You can find the video website here:

This could be of great benefit to our VCHS Band Students auditioning for District or All-State Ensembles. Good luck!

Congratulations to Seniors Matt Clark and Gabe Karst for earning positions in the SCKMEA District Jazz Ensemble. Matt made 1st Alto Sax with Gabe at 2nd Trombone. They will be performing Nov. 4th at Andover Central High School. Good Job guys !!

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.
