Here is the latest news and information about the Hinsdale South High School Hornet Band.
* We have finalized solo and ensemble entries. Please remember to get your accompaniment parts to Ms. Boso as soon as possible and remember each soloist or ensemble that needs an accompanist needs to pay that person $20 prior to the contest. The contest is on Saturday March 4 and we will have transportation available to the contest at Hillcrest High School.

* We have outstanding lesson teachers here at Hinsdale South. Our outstanding administration and school board are great supporters of the music department. It is really important for you to take advantage of the excellent lesson teachers that have been made available to you. Lessons are very affordable, only costing you between $12-16 per 1/2 hour lesson. If you would like more information about our lesson teachers, please feel free to email or call me.
