Vela Band End Of Year Concert 2021

Congratulations to the Vela Band for performing their first in person concert after 15 months of concert silence! They did an OUTSTANDING job!

Most of their musical development happened during online teaching! We finally came together six weeks before the concert with very minimal in-person rehearsal and full band rehearsal after school. These great performances are a reflection of their hard work and dedication to their instrument, band and community. The tradition of excellence continues….

On June 3rd, after a year and three months of concert silence, the Vela Band came together for an amazing night of great music making! Congratulations to these fine musicians for their resilience and dedication to the Vela Band. Thank you parents and guardians for entrusting us with your child’s music education! The tradition of excellence continues…
