The Band's 2017 Graduating Seniors: An impressive group recognized at the Annual End-of-Year Band Banquet.
The North Springs High School graduation ceremony will be held on Thursday, May 25, at the Georgia State University Basketball Arena (125 Decatur St SE, Atlanta, GA 30303) from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. The band will be performing Pomp and Circumstance and the recessional march for the ceremony. Here is the timeline for the day with relevant information:
- Students will have time to eat between noon and 1:00.
- Please pack a lunch as we will not have time to go anywhere.
- An alternative to this is for parents to take their child and stop somewhere on the way for lunch.
- Students who are not dressed appropriately will not be permitted to perform.
We will have a truck that can take larger instruments. Students will load their instrument on the day before graduation or the morning of. I will unload the instruments on Friday morning.
I think that covers everything, but please let me know if you have any questions.
Please return the bottom portion of the permission slip by 5/19/17.
Only 5% of students who audition for the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music get in and North Springs own Mekhi Gladden is one of them! Of 18 aspiring Oboists who auditioned, Mekhi was the ONLY one selected. Curtis is THE school for professional musicians who want to play in a major symphony orchestra!
Congrats Mekhi!! Your Spartan Band family is very proud of you!

GMEA Large Group Performance Evaluation
Date: Monday, February, 27 20017
Location: Cambridge High School
The Georgia Music Educators Association’s LGPE is an annual evaluation of middle school and high school band, orchestra, and choral ensembles from every district in the state. This is an important event for us as it gives our students and directors valuable feedback from a credentialed panel of judges on the state of our performing groups.
Here are the performances details:
Fulton County is working on buses for our students. We will travel in either school buses or chartered coaches depending on availability. I will need at least two chaperones for each performance. Please contact me at email@example.com if you are available and would like to travel with us.
The performances are free and open to the public. Plan on arriving at least 10 minutes early as the doors will be closed once the evaluation begins. When our stage performance is finished, parents are welcome to move to the sight reading room with us to hear that performance as well.
Please join us for the Intermediate & Advanced Band Winter Concert, Tuesday night, 12/13/2016 at 7:00 PM (auditorium @ North Springs).
As always, attire is concert black - tuxes and dresses.

We should return to NS sometime between 11:00 and 11:30 PM, depending on the length of the game.
