Welcome to the Mona Shores Bands Website!
The home for everything about the band program at Mona Shores Public Schools.
On this website, you'll find information about all of the bands at the middle school and high school, including marching band, concert bands (symphonic band and wind ensemble), jazz band, steel drum ensemble, and more.
Good morning, Sailor Band,
We are really looking forward to our winter retreat this Friday and Saturday! This is an awesome experience, working with instrumental staff and an amazing clinician, Dr. Arris Golden, the Assoc. Director of Bands at MSU, and it has a huge impact on the success of our bands and our musicians.
I am also very excited to announce that the Central Michigan University Wind Ensemble will be performing to kick off the retreat on Friday afternoon. Families are welcome to attend this if you have that time available. They are performing on Friday from 1:45-2;30 in our performing arts center. You may enter through the PAC entrance, and you do not need to go to the main office first.
We are also concluding retreat with a performance by Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band and Steel Band at 3:00pm on Saturday. We would love for families and friends to be in attendance to support the great work our students will be doing over the weekend.
A link to volunteer was sent out recently--we could really use some help with volunteering for meals and with donating food for the band students. Here is a schedule for the weekend:
