Dear Students and Parents,

We are excited to have you join the SHS Band program!  It is our distinct honor to have you be a part of our experience with this amazing group of young people, their parents, and our program instructors.  The Summerville Band has known a long and rich heritage of success and a respected place in SC band history.  We have been handed a bright torch, burning for more than 50 years in the community, and we believe that it is our responsibility to send it to future generations with the same dignity and quality with which it came to us.  On behalf of all our band family, welcome!

The following forms and information are required for us to get you involved in the band program.  We are happy to have these available online this year!  Please click on the following links and complete the information requested.  Whether you are a brand new member or a rising senior member, this is the information we need from you.
