I am working on the website next week, and I will have everything up to date by next Friday.
As always, you can keep up to date here with all the comings and goings of the band program. But it is worthwhile to remind you that you will get information also on the band twitter and instagram account (@bandatwestwood) that is not posted here - such as schedules for the band and information about auditions or just some funny laughs.
See you soon! Mr. E.
