Last year, we were finally able to join the band and play in the stands for homecoming. Click on the Homecoming Details tab above for all the information for this year. The date is coming fast, Friday, September 30! Please take a moment now if you need to update your contact info by clicking on the Become a Member tab. Please encourage your band classmates to register as well. We will post information regarding events there as well as on our Facebook group page: Winter Park High School Alumni Band. Please join that FB group now if you haven’t already.
Purpose: For the 2022-23 school year (in addition to annual instrument/music expenses), the fundraising purpose will be to help support the band on their trip to New York at the end of the school year to perform at Carnegie Hall. The financial needs of the band never cease, so please donate any amount today by clicking on Donate Now orange buttons at the bottom of every page on our website. You can also help the WPHS Band for free when you shop on amazon by using this link every time:
History: The WPHSBAA has raised over $48,500 for the band since it was founded in 2009. It was created to help offset the rising costs for a band program of this caliber, including purchasing/repairing instruments, ordering music, maintaining the trailers and uniforms for the Sound of the Wildcats Marching Band, and financing trips to showcase the ensembles’ extensive talent at festivals across the nation. Mike Clemente is beginning his 4th year as Director of Bands after 6 years as the Associate Director. His years of experience will ensure that the traditions we hold dear will be continued, especially our reunions every 5 years and the annual homecoming events with the Alumni Band.
From all the board members of the WPHSBAA, we hope to see you this fall, and we thank you again for your generous support.
Jane Claus – President
Glen Waters – Vice President and Alumni Band Coordinator
Michelle Tribble – Secretary
Mary Eichin – Treasurer
Jamie Jones – Membership Coordinator
Joseph Wise – Past Band Director
