Hello Waconia Band Families!
We are less than 2 weeks away from one of our favorite concerts of the year-the Waconia District Band Festival! This is a great event where all of our band students (~800 right now!) grades 5-12 get together and perform for each other and their families at one concert.
The concert will be held in the Waconia High School Gym on Tuesday, February 19th at 7:00pm.
We look forward to this special event each year! Come and join us for the fun!
For your convenience, HERE is the link to our 2018-19 WHS Bands HandBook. It can also always be found on the “Concert Bands” Tab at the top of the page.
Looking forward to a great school year!

It seems like we just got started, so it is hard to believe that we need to start thinking about the end of year Marching Band Banquet. This year it will be held on Monday, July 9th at 6:00 p.m. We are holding the Banquet at the High School and will utilize our beautiful new Commons Area and Performing Arts Center. We will eat dinner first in the Commons and then will all move to the PAC (remember no food or drink) to watch our end of year video, recognize all our achievements, as well as celebrate our seniors. Attached is the Reservation and Payment form which has all the details. We ask that you please complete the bottom of the Reservation and Payment Form and return as directed by Saturday, June 30th.
Unfortunately, this is a firm deadline as we have to let the caterer know the number of expected guests. No payment or reservations can be taken at the door. Once your Reservation and Payment is received, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to you.
For the Banquet Ticket Order Form, please click Here.
Attached is the 2018 WMB Parade Guide. Please note that the Load Times may change as weather, construction or Parade Line-ups change, but we will be VERY clear and tell the students and change the calendar to reflect these changes.
Also, with the performance locations, we do our absolute best to perform in those spots. However, parade flow sometimes prohibits our ability to perform in certain locations. We will always perform in the judging zone.
Thank you all, and we can’t wait to see you on the streets!
