  • Kicking off 2016-17 with Grant Band
    We're looking forward to another school year full of great musical performances, starting with the first concert on October 5. You can find all the band-related schedule in our Calendar page on this site, but here are some highlights:

    Veterans Day Parade - Nov. 11, 2016 at 9:30am
    Grant Band will march in the parade again this year. Marching practices will be held after school on Nov. 1, 2, and 8 in preparation for the parade.

    Grantasia - Dec. 15, 2016 at 6:00pm
    This is one of the highlights of the year at Grant, featuring student artists and musicians of all every stripe. It's a great way to kick off the holiday season.

    Sweet Sound of Jazz - Feb. 24, 2017
    This part-performance, part-auction is our biggest fundraiser of the year. The old gym gets transformed into a jazz club and you can enjoy performances by three of the Grant bands (JL, JE, WE) while dining and perusing the silent auction items. You won't want to miss this!

    (Interested in helping to plan the auction? Please contact SSOJ chair Amy Geoffroy to find out when planning meetings will start.)

    Solo/Ensemble Competitions
    Grant students can participate in a number of these throughout the year. See our Honor Band page for details. Students who want to take part should talk to Mr. McFadden directly.

    Jazz Festivals
    Students in jazz groups will also travel to several festivals throughout the season. One of the first is Clark College Jazz Festival (Vancouver) on January 28.

    And finally, every other year Grant hosts a trip for students and the next trip will happen in spring 2017. Watch this space -- and our weekly newsletters -- for details as they become available.

    Here's to another great year with Grant Band!
