Good Morning Staff, Students & Parents,

I am excited to announce that our band will be performing prior to the Pistons game on WED MARCH 7th 2018. We have played at the Palace and at Comerica Park in previous years and in speaking with my contact with the Pistons he asked if we would be interested in playing at the new arena. We are very excited to offer this to our band and students! 
 
Last time we played at the Palace many students got to meet players, autographs, take pics, etc.
