This past weekend the Virginia Band and Orchestra Directors Association named Forest Park High School a Virginia Honor Band. This award recognizes programs who achieve Superior ratings in both the Marching Band Assessment and the Concert Band Assessment. This is the 9th time we have been so honored.
Despite some interesting logistics, the Wind Ensemble participated as a selected band at the National Band Association symposium held at George Mason University this weekend.
