Winter Show Planning Meeting - November 7

Planning for the 2020 Winter Show is already underway! The Winter Show is a day-long competition featuring 30+ Winter Guard and Indoor Percussion groups from around the tristate area. The show is a major fundraiser for the Band programs, and usually brings in 1000+ spectators over the course of the day. The 2020 Winter Show is scheduled for March 7.

Interested in helping to plan the Winter Show? Please join us on 11/7 at 7pm in the MHS Auditorium. We will finish up before the end of Marching Band practice. If you are unable to attend but interested in helping, please contact Leslie Long at wintershow@milfordbands.org.

If you can't hang it yourself, please make arrangements to have someone hang it for you, or drop it off at the MHS Office during the school day with a label for "Band Boosters". Remember:
  • Posters should be 22" wide by 28" tall.
  • Take advantage of the SmugMug albums assembled by our Booster photographers to collect photos (link here).
  • These are a surprise for first-time marchers...please keep them a secret!
