Welcome to the Home of the Bands of Veterans!
As one of the finest bands in middle Georgia, the Veterans Instrumental Music Department serves over 200 talented high school musicians. Located in Kathleen, Georgia the band program consists of three concert bands, percussion ensembles, jazz band, flute ensembles and the award winning Warhawk Squadron.
We have a dedicated staff that guides and encourages our amazing students both during and after school. Our expectations are high, and our students and staff always rise to the occasion. Our supportive parent community and the Veterans Band Boosters help raise funds that support our efforts, making it possible for us to continue to provide an excellent band experience for all. Our students truly exemplify the Veterans High School Motto, "Excellence is the Standard, not the Goal."

Happy Concert week! At long last, we have FINALLY made it to the week of our last performance of this school year. Instructions regarding concert times, call times, COVID procedures, and uniform were sent out in an email last week. Please let one of the directors know if you did not get this information last week.
Students, even though we have a few more days to go, THANK YOU for the hard work you have put in during such a trying and exhausting year! Your dedication is NOT lost on us and we greatly appreciate it!
Remember that the first marching band payment is due by the END OF THE SEMESTER, May 26. This info is was listed in the Marching Band Info Packet that was sent home previously. The first installment is $100
Leadership candidates, decisions on leadership positions will be posted outside the directors’ offices tomorrow afternoon at the end of the day. A HUGE thanks to all that applied! The band will certainly be in good hands moving forward.
Leadership, please note that we have two meetings scheduled after school this and next Wednesday. Check the calendar for times!
Percussion auditions have now been scheduled for May 10-12, and May 14. They will be from 3:45 to 5pm in the band room. The first three days are meant to familiarize yourself with the audition materials and skills, and the final Friday is reserved for the formal audition. Audition packets have been printed and are available for pickup during class.
And finally, please recall from last week that the dates for Spring Training have been updated to include only May 20 and 21. This event is for ALL Warhawk Squadron members!
