Web Registration for TSTLTS is Now Open!

In the menu beneath our banner picture, you’ll notice a new option. Clicking that link will take you to the online registration form that gives us all the information we need to know about you and lets us know that you’ll be a part of the 33rd edition of The Sound That Lights the South! As soon as you click send, you’ll be sent an email with a welcome letter from Drs. Byrd and Self and some pertinent information.

We’ve got some big changes happening in the band program right now that we’re very excited about. First, we’re very happy to announce that we will be traveling to both the Valdosta St. and Shorter away games. Also, in order to make room for fall Wind Ensemble (and because we know how precious your time is), we’re cutting back rehearsal time for marching band again. We will rehearse Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-5:15PM on non-performance weeks. When we have a game or exhibition, we will add a 5:30-7:30PM rehearsal Friday evening.

The theme for this fall’s field show will be Blue Light, Red Light and will feature jazz and funk music. We will have another exciting announcement coming up later this week when we post the leadership team for the fall.

Go West, Go Band, and GO WOLVES!!!
