Event Date: 
Sat, 04/16/2011 - 11:00am - 2:00pm

The Aledo Band Boosters will host the McAnally Intermediate School Beginner Band Fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 16 at the Aledo High School Cafeteria.

The come-and-go event will allow prospective band members to see which instrument they are best suited for, and once a child finds the right instrument, he or she can sign up for band on the spot.

Percussion will have to take a test that will cover several aspects including coordination and time keeping.

Band directors point out that the most popular instruments will fill up first. Due to instrumental needs in middle school and high school bands, there are certain percentages allowed of people who play each instrument. Instrument selection will be first-come, first served.
