Band Members Participate in Inaugural Stately Oaks Band Festival

Over spring break, several members of the Catholic High band program participated in the inaugural Stately Oaks Band Festival at LSU on April 1 and 2. Each musician was required to sight read and master challenging music for their performance which was held at the Union Theater.

The intense, but rewarding, event gave students from around southern Louisiana an opportunity to tour the Golden Band facilities, work with the LSU Wind and Percussion Faculty and socialize with each other.
