The Sanderson Band has a long history of excellence, dating back to the school's opening in 1968. Currently, the Sanderson Band program consists of the Marching Spartans, Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, and various other small ensembles, as well as annual performances with the Sanderson Theater Department in the spring musical. The band has performed extensively across North Carolina and the Southeastern United States in both marching band competitions and concert band festivals. Each year many Sanderson Band students are selected for All-District, All-State, and Governor's School, and many alumni are pursuing music degrees at some of the country's finest universities.

Thank you for taking time to learn about the Sanderson High School Band. We hope to see you at one of our many performances throughout the year!

Walnut Creek 2019

From: Stacey Cochran, SHS Band Boosters Walnut Creek Coordinator (walnutcreek@sandersonband.com)

Please see the sign up genius below for dates for 2019 Walnut Creek concerts.  We will not need a full staff for all concerts.  The number of volunteers needed for each concert will vary depending on ticket sales.  Please sign up for the concerts you would like to work and I will confirm closer to the concert date.  There should be new concerts added soon for summer dates.  This year, we will have to inventory specific items/containers that are sold at the beginning of the night and again at the end of the night.  I am asking for 2 volunteers per event to come early to count.  We will compensate this role with an extra amount to your Fair Share account for that event.  Also new this year, we will have groups of 4 students (16 and up) selling pizza in the lawn area.  All times listed are the GATE opening times.  Counters will arrive approximately 2 hours before this time and all others will arrive 1 hour before.  Parents (and students 18 or over) please sign up under TEAM trained.  Students that are 16 & 17 years old need to sign up under the NON TEAM trained.  Parents or students may sign up as counters.   Students that are 16 & 17 years old may sign up to sell pizza. 

TEAM training dates:  If you haven't been trained or your training has expired, you can still sign up for the April 13 concert.  An April training date will be announced soon.
