If you are not pleased with how your audition went this time then be sure to prepare more for your next one. ALL members of the band program are very important no matter where you placed. You all make up one great big family that care for each other and look out after each other. We are proud of all of you and look forward to another great year at our NEW Grissom High School! Now go practice!
