The amazing band program at Pioneer High was created with the talents of Maestro David Leach, who is celebrating his 15th year as the Director of Bands at Pioneer.  Nancy Waring has shared her skills for the past 25 year there too.  WOW!  What a terrific team!!!

Bring your family, and invite your friends to help celebrate, connect with friends and alumni.  If you have ever heard Mr. Leach say, “Long notes are not strong notes!” then this is the event for you.  Attend and lend your support to this incredibly musical and memorable program.

Join Pioneer Band parents, friends, and alumni for this fun evening.

This year's Gala/auction promises to be MUCH different then years past. Along with it's primary goal of raising funds for scholarships, endowments, and stipends, this year we will be raising the sounds of laughter!

Finally we will conclude the evening dancing the night away to the professional band "Your Generation In Concert."

This evening promises to be a celebration of all that is the Bands of Pioneer and much more! Won't you please join us, and invite someone else?
