Appalachia Elementary School band program is growing strong. “We have grown this year and we now have several new band members in grades 6th, 7th, and 8th,” says director Bryan Wharton.
The band plans a Christmas concert in December. Band students participate in Junior All-County, Pace, and All District Band try-outs. Several of the students march with the Union High Band. In the spring, a concert is planned for May and the band will take their end of year trip to Dollywood.
