Sign Up for Band, Orchestra or Strings by September 22

Thank you to all the students and families who joined us for Instrument Night this week!

On Wednesday and Thursday, we held information sessions to give students a look at the many instruments that they can learn when they sign up for Red Clay's elementary band and orchestra programs (grades 4-5) and middle school strings programs (grades 6-8).

Our talented band and orchestra directors were on hand to explain the programs, demonstrate instruments, and answer questions from families. We also had representatives from local music stores who shared information about their instrument rental programs.

Learn more about Red Clay's elementary band and orchestra programs and middle school strings programs.

Ready to sign up for a music program? Register by September 22nd.
