BAND BOOSTER DONATIONS

OUR MISSION

The purpose of the Apex Middle School Band Boosters shall be to promote an interest in and appreciation of the various activities conducted by the Apex Middle School Band program.  We are a registered non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

2014 School Year  This year promises to be full of music and fun!

6th graders are invited join Mrs Bishop for a mini-camp early in August in the Band Room to get a hand-on introduction to their instrument. We've got a bandathon coming early in October, marching in the Apex Christmas Parade for the 7th & 8th graders, and holiday concerts in December.  During the winter, 7th & 8th graders can also participate in the all-county, all-district, and all-state competitions.  In the spring, we'll participate in some adjudicated performances, and end the year with the spring concerts.

About AMS Bands  Apex Middle School Bands include a beginning band, intermediate band, and advanced band, along with a Pep Band which plays at home football games in the fall, and a Jazz Band which plays during school concerts and special gatherings during the year. Mrs. Helen Bishop directs each band.
