Alumni marching band forming for 25th annual band festival

Dust off the trumpets and clean the clarinets!

All former members of Alexandria's Jefferson High School Marching Band are invited to march down Broadway once again as part of the alumni band, which is being formed to celebrate the 25th annual Vikingland Band Festival on Sunday, June 28.

The alumni band will be led by current Jefferson High School band director Todd Blaser. Other former band directors and staff are also planning to be on hand for the weekend.

Blaser encourages all former band members to get involved and he says the experience goes beyond the parade performance.

The Jefferson High School Alumni Marching Band has assembled only three times in the past.
