Music is a great way to create new and unique friendships while also building on existing ones. Many students will admit that the GBDSS music program has introduced them to their closest friends, whom they would not have met otherwise. The time spent with your friends at concerts, festivals, and weekly evening band rehearsals will create a special bond and make your high school experience a little less stressful!
A key part of the GBDSS music experience is the trips and performances that we participate in throughout every school year. Annual trips include music festival performances, retirement home visits, parades, elementary school performances, and of course many school concerts.
