5th Place at Nationals!
Our students had a strong performance to end the competition season Saturday night, placing 5th out of 8 bands, with a score of 94.838. Eyes with Pride!


Pie Order Pick Up, Saturday, 11/18, 9-11am
All pie orders must be picked up between 9am and 11am this Saturday, 11/18, at the back of the high school, across from the baseball field. We are unable to hold any orders after 11am because the pies are delivered frozen and we don't have a location to store them.


Band Banquet Form Due December 6
Our annual Band Banquet will be held at the Aqua Turf Club on January 4, 2018 at 6pm. This is a night to celebrate achievements, while enjoying a nice dinner with family. There will also be a raffle, and raffle donations are much appreciated. Raffle donations may be handed in during the Band Backers meeting on December 6, or the night of the banquet. The deadline to hand in the banquet form with payment is 12/6/17. Please contact Michelle Costello 860-621-8010 or Dawn Stomsky 860-302-4139 with any questions about the banquet.

BKMB History
Laura Shaw is working on a History of the Marching Band and Southington Music Program. She is looking for any information you may have; pictures, recordings, fundraiser flyers, etc. She has a lot of stuff from 1999 to the present, so anything before that would be awesome. She especially wants things played for marching band and orchestra, special events, trips, and odd and interesting stuff like selling cleaning products as a fundraiser..yeah they did that! Send anything you have to

Our December Band Backers meeting will begin at 7:30pm. Minutes from the October 4, 2017 meeting are available by clicking THIS LINK. Upcoming fundraisers and band events are discussed. Want to know more? Stop by!!!

Band Backer Legacy Supporter Program: Once a Band Backer always a Band Backer
As someone who believes that a quality music program is something we need to preserve and continue to strengthen, what better community to reach out to then former Southington Band Backers and their families! You know first-hand what Southington's music program has done for your children. You know how lucky we are to have such a dedicated group of Music Educators in our town. You know that the Southington Band Backer organization's purpose is to strengthen and support the music programs in our schools. Your children may have moved on to bigger things but it's important to remember how they got there. With that spirit in mind we have a new opportunity for past Band Backers and their family's to continue to support and strengthen the Southington Music program for years to come. With an annual donation to the Southington Band Backers, a 509(a) charity, you will be listed as a Band Backer Legacy Supporter in the Music of the Knight Program Guide and receive 2 MOTK tickets as our thank you. You may choose from three Support levels. Bronze Level $100, Silver Level $200, and Gold Level $300. You know how important these programs are; please consider being a part of the sound for as long as you can. For more information or to pledge your support please contact Erik Semmel at Your charitable pledge of support will be billed to you automatically in July just before the marching band season begins.
