The Band Gathering - Irish Knight Band Alumni and Booster Reunion
A big thank you to everyone who attended “The Gathering” on Saturday, June 8. “The Gathering” is hosted by former IKB staff, boosters and alums with the purpose of connecting and reconnecting IKB alumni and boosters from years past. This year our event began with the Alumni Band concert in the gym and was followed by dinner and time to reconnect with familiar faces. We hope you'll join us again next year!
We have two summer rehearsals for wind players only. These are scheduled to keep the returning members from getting out of shape over summer and introducing the new members to some of the music they will get at band camp. These rehearsals are optional, so if you already have a vacation planned it is understandable that you won’t be here, but if you are in town it is expected that you will be at rehearsal.
