SPARTAN SOUND 2022-23
The Spartan Sound is our most visible performance group at Sun Valley High School, participating in marching band competitions, local parades, and our varsity football games during the Fall Season. An informational/sign up meeting will be held on TUESDAY, APRIL 5th at 6:30pm in the high school auditorium.
SUMMER/FALL 2022 Schedule (tentative as of 627/2022)
Attendance at Band Camp is a requirement for all members. If you are aware of a conflict already, be sure to communicate that with Mr. Reynolds. Otherwise, please avoid scheduling family trips, work, appointments, etc, if they can at all be avoided. Having 100% attendance helps ensure that all students are present to learn new material and refine and clean previously taught music/choreography. MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW to help avoid potential conflicts.
