As noted in the Member Handbook, each member will be issued a Manhasset Voyager Music Stand for use at concerts outside of our home location at the Middle School upon payment of the deposit. You may choose to purchase your own but it must be the Voyager stand for consistency of appearance. "WIRE" stands are NOT acceptable. If you have any questions, please see a board member.  

Inclement Weather

The Bands follow the Sharon Public Schools cancellations. If evening activities are closed for the school system, then rehearsal is cancelled. Every attempt will be made to post information to the website rehearsal page.
