From the President

To all the Cario Band families that also have Wando Band musicians - Congratulations on a tremendous season! As a band director, a band parent, and a band fan, I'm overwhelmed by the quality of the band program at Wando. Believe me, this is not normal! Having a Grand Nationals Finalist band right in our backyard is truly a treasure, and I'm exceedingly proud!

This week in the Cario Bands we have our first Jazz Band concert of the year, and another fundraiser comes in. Lots of great things going on this week! Thanks for encouraging your students at home; it makes all the difference in the world!
