Hello and welcome to the award winning Oldham County Middle School Band Family and congratulations on your decision to be a part of one of the finest organizations in the country. There are few organizations of any kind so rich in tradition and success that also include so many real-world experiences for student and booster alike. This school year gives us all the opportunity to carry on this outstanding tradition of excellence. The Oldham County Middle School Band provides musical activities that encompass a wide scope and allows everyone a chance to reach the highest possible level of success.
While the musical activities are the core of our program, the total band experience provides the student far more opportunities. During the year, students will be able to participate in leadership development programs; learn and apply planning, goal setting, and team-building skills; and spend time with other students and adults who have direction and goals as an integral part of their lives.
The Oldham County Middle School Band features three outstanding concert organizations that have developed a reputation for musical excellence through concert and festival performances. These ensembles present several public concerts as well as perform in the KMEA Large Ensemble Assessment in the Spring. In addition to ensemble successes, members of the Oldham County Middle School Band distinguish themselves through individual efforts in All-District auditions, Solo and Small Ensemble Assessment, and other Honor Band activities.
The cornerstone and legacy of the Oldham County Middle School Band program is striving for excellence through dedication, learning, experience, and a team effort from students, boosters, and staff. The substantial recognition that the Band receives is in no small way a result of the success acknowledged in the past at reaching for and obtaining excellence. This school year looks to be an exciting opportunity to build on that legacy. It is also important to note that one side benefit to the total band experience is the fun and lasting relationships and memories that are developed by both students and parents. Hard-working students, dedicated staff, involved and active parents, and a supportive administration and community all combine to make it possible for the Oldham County Middle School Band program to offer an outstanding array of musical opportunities.
Our students are expected to set and reach high goals for themselves and their program, and the rewards of meeting those expectations are immeasurable. Members of the Oldham County Middle School Band develop musically, emotionally, mentally, and socially.
Best wishes and GO COLONELS!
