Weekly Newsletter #39 | March 16, 2020

In the midst of all the events of the past week, we share in the sadness of our Winter Guard and Drumline students, directors, and staff at the abrupt end to their seasons. Valhalla Awaits, Gran Torino, and Into the West exemplified the best qualities of Milford Bands. Their artistry and musicality were matched only by the passion of their performers, and we were privileged to see them grow over the course of the season.

Each of these performances are available for viewing on Youtube. Link to them here.
