The Dos Pueblos High School Instrumental Music Program includes the Dance Guard, Concert Band, Drumline, Jazz Bands, Marching Band, and Orchestra. Under the music direction of Dan Garske and with support from the Dos Pueblos Band Boosters, the program has grown tremendously in the past few years.
For the 2016-2017 school year the Dos Pueblos Marching Chargers and Dance Guard begin the year with their new show entitled “Behind the Walls”, which is sure to impress local crowds and the judges at our regional competitions for 2016.
Excitement awaits our other instrumental music programs (Dance Guard, Concert Band, Drumline, Jazz Bands, Marching Band, and Orchestra). This year we plan to return to the Reno Jazz Festival to defend last year’s 1st place Jazz Combo win. We also plan to not only defend last year’s Drum Line State Championship title, but to also compete at the Nationals. The Color Guard plans to not only capture last year’s historic winning record but also to best last year’s record. Additionally, the County’s only remaining High School Orchestra is bigger and better than ever, and many community performances are planned. However, we can only achieve our plans if we are able to meet our financial goals. The raised funds will cover just about every expense incurred by the Instrumental Music Program with the exception of our Music Director’s salary.
