The Hermosa Valley Advanced Band (a-band) and Beginner’s Band (b-band) has grown through the years to its highest level, playing anywhere and anything that comes their way.

This 2011-2012 school year b-band has about 40 students, its greatest number of students so far.

Meanwhile, a-band has 10 musicians on a good day and no percussion. However, both bands are chugging along quite well with their Winter Concert this month and smaller gigs along the way.

In band they play classic music from famous composers like Sousa and Beethoven, as well as fun, boppy music from artists like Journey and Lady Gaga.

A-band practices Mondays and b-band on Thursdays, both at 3:15 p.m. after school, so come listen.
