Dear Viking Marching Band Parents,

Schedule Change for Friday

  1. Please note that Friday rehearsal has been moved to 4-7:30 pm.
  2. From 7-7:30, we will have our final run-through and our annual senior circle. Come watch this fun tradition wherein the VMB seniors sit down and get serenaded by the younger students, who will play the music from “The Bard” just for them!

Note: Although the Samohi varsity football team will be in the playoffs on Friday night (GO VIKINGS!), they do not require the marching band. They will have a deejay playing tunes during the game!
