Start making plans to join us for Band Day 2015. If your student plays an instrument, twirls or spins a flag then this event is for them. Now for all band students in grades 7th-12th is an opportunity to rehearse and perform with the Kilgore College Band.
Students from all over the area will join the KC Band each year for our band day event. Have section and marching rehearsals and perform during halftime of a Kilgore College football game. This is a great opportunity for band, twirl and color guard members to visit the college campus, experience a typical day with a college band, perform for hundreds of spectators and meet many new people with the same interest as them.
We hope your student decides to join us this year and we know that they will have a very positive experience that they will remember and will want to be part of each year.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
You don't have to bring the printed ticket. We can check you in with our electronic system just by using your name.
Do parents or directors have to stay the entire time?
Absolutely not, they can drop you off at registration and then return for the game time performance. We have many staff members, medical staff and protocols in place to make sure everyone is safe and accounted for.
I'm worried about being able to play well enough?
No worries. When we select music for this event, we make sure that music is playable for students in their 2nd year of band all the way to seniors in high school.
I'm worried about the twirling or flag routines being too difficult to learn?
No worries. We work very hard to make sure that our routines are simple enough for everyone. We want you to have a fun and exciting experience.
If you have any other questions, let us know and we will be glad to answer them for you.
This is what the official Band Day 2015 T-shirt will look like. It is included in your registration for Band Day 2015.
