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."

I hope you all had a wonderful and restful break, and are ready to finish the final push to our Holiday Concert and to the end of the semester! Over the next two weeks we will be finalizing our rehearsal on the pieces we will be performing for our digital concert, so make sure you are practicing as often as you can!
There will be handouts in each class containing info on concert recording procedure for December 9, 10, and 11. We will discuss this in class this week.
Your Google Classroom assignment for this week has been posted, and is due this Friday by 11:59pm.
Finally, all students will be receiving a handout with information about End-of-Semester Chair Placement tests. We will also discuss this in class this week.
Thank you all so much for your help and commitment to one of the strangest and most tumultuous marching band seasons of all time. I will send out a separate email to all Marching Band Members later this week detailing any final wrap-up information for this season
