Hello GP Band Families!

Before we say goodbye to the 2024-25 school year and the Class of 2024…

Thank you to everyone who contributed to an amazing year of GP Band and to all who made this year’s Band Banquet a fun and memorable event.

Congratulations seniors, scholarship recipients, award winners, and band letter recipients.

From our Concert Program Coordinator, Andrea Leger
It has been my pleasure to create the band concert programs this year! Before the Spring Concert earlier this month, I had to make some adjustments to my template. The Wind Ensemble trumpet section ended up a little smooshed, and unfortunately I didn't catch it before it went to printing. If you're like me and you love to hang onto this sort of memento, I wanted to offer you a corrected version to print on your own. On that note, if you ever notice that your child's name is misspelled or misattributed, please reach out! It's very important to me that these hard-working students are credited accurately. If you would like a corrected version of the Spring Concert program, please email with “Program” in the subject line.
