This year the All Town Band Concert will be on Tuesday, March 6th.  This is a chance for the younger grades to hear all of the different levels of band (middle school and high school) and a chance to play with friends from other Burlington elementary schools.  It’s a fun night hosted by the Burlington High School at their big wooden gymnasium.  See you there.
