COVID 19 Update

From Mr. Allmond:

Well I’m writing this message heartbroken. The Governor has closed schools for the rest of the school year. I’m really concerned for my seniors and them not being able to complete the school year and complete the legacy of excellence that they’ve so formidably establish at the onset of the school year. Rest assured that you have performed your mission well and this class will be remembered for some time to come. We still are facing the task to get better as musicians on our distance learning endeavor. I know this is a rough time, but I really need you to keep practicing and growing as musicians.

Fontana Christmas Parade 2019

Call time for the Fontana Christmas Parade will be 7:30am on Saturday.

After the Fontana Christmas parade, the 1st semester and marching season will be a wrap. This marching season provided our kids with wonderful experiences and many accolades. Some of them being Sweepstakes at Azusa Golden Days Parade, 2nd Place at the LA County Fair Marching Band Competition, along with many awards for performance excellence in color guard as well as a 1st place award at the San Gorgornio Field Show Competition.

The Christmas Concert was a rousing success. It was great to see so many of you come out and celebrate with us the beauty of the Christmas season and the accomplishments of our kids. I look forward to the upcoming concert season, winter guard season, and winter drumline season. All of these activities provide our kids with amazing experiences that will impact them for a lifetime. Please support us in our efforts to provide these experiences to our kids. We will be letting you know how you can be of service to them as the season unfolds. Have a wonderful Christmas season and prosperous new year!

Itinerary For Semi Finals 2019

And so the marching season is coming to an end after next week’s performance at Arcadia. We’ve had some great successes and some not so successful moments that we have gleaned great knowledge to aid us in future musical endeavors. Your kids have worked extremely hard and are the reason that our organization is still among the best in Southern Ca. Your assistance and dedication to your kids success has been essential in the success that we’ve experienced this season. I’m very thankful for your assistance. Please continue that assistance as we perform at Semi Finals on Saturday Nov. 16th at Irvine High School at 5:45pm. We would like to see you all their cheering on our kids in their last field performance of the year. I’m very proud of these kids and their love of music and their dedication to excellence. Your attendance and applause at this event would really add to the overall excellence of their performance. Please attend and witness the product of your kids diligent, and tireless labor.
Again I’d like to thank you for your awesome support and look forward to that continuing the remainder of this season.
