US Army Field Band to Play at Asheville High School

US Army Field BandThe United States Army Field Band and Soldiers’ Chorus will play a free concert at Asheville High School on Saturday, March 18 at 7pm. Asheville High School Band Director Emily Talley considers the the Army Field Band and Chorus “one of the finest military ensembles in the country.” As the band is only able to visit our region once every eight years, this is a great opportunity for both students and the community!

The US Army Field Band will be joined by about a dozen advanced students from the Asheville High School Bands Program. This free event is sponsored by the BP Solutions Group, a marketing services provider based in Asheville, NC. The concert will take place at the Asheville High School Auditorium.

While the concert is free, tickets are required. To reserve a ticket, contact Asheville High School Band Director Emily Talley at 828 350-2646 or emily.talley@acsgmail.net or visit https://armyfieldband.ticketleap.com/asheville/ There is a maximum of four tickets per person.

“The Army Field Band and Chorus is one of the finest military ensembles in the country and we are looking forward to hosting these phenomenal musicians at Asheville High.” — Emily Talley, Asheville High School Band Director

Haunted House! Spooky!!

Hey everybody, Remember the Haunted House we did in the fall?

That was pretty scary , huh?
You know what’s even more scary?
All the decorations are still sitting in the band trailer and guess what?  We need to use the trailer!
What do we do?

You got it!  Build or buy a storage shed for the Band!  The trailer and band room are overflowing with good stuff and it needs a permanent home.

We’ve got a sweet spot picked out right outside the band room so if you work for a construction company or have an in at Lowes or Home Depot drop me a line.  We need your help!

Thanks and have a spooky Friday!

– Dave Schmidt, President AHSBA
