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.
