The Sanderson Band has a long history of excellence, dating back to the school's opening in 1968. Currently, the Sanderson Band program consists of the Marching Spartans, Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, and various other small ensembles, as well as annual performances with the Sanderson Theater Department in the spring musical. The band has performed extensively across North Carolina and the Southeastern United States in both marching band competitions and concert band festivals. Each year many Sanderson Band students are selected for All-District, All-State, and Governor's School, and many alumni are pursuing music degrees at some of the country's finest universities.

Thank you for taking time to learn about the Sanderson High School Band. We hope to see you at one of our many performances throughout the year!

Help Needed Sunday for Making Props!

Many, many thanks to all the volunteers that came out on Saturday to help with the props!  We still have work to do so we're calling all parents and students who can help to come out to school on Sunday from noon until 4 PM (or later) - come stay the whole time, or for just a few hours.  Any time you can give will help!  Our biggest task is assembling and painting the columns needed for the Fiesta show.  We will have all the tools and materials on site, however, if you have paint brushes, rollers and roller trays, please bring them.  Water and sunscreen are also recommended.  If you have a pop tent please bring it to help with shade.  I look forward to seeing you on Sunday!  John Carter (Props, Pit, Truck & Equipment Guy)
