The Pisgah High School band has had a big year from its start in late July to its current preparations for the next school year.

The band has performed throughout Western North Carolina this year and recently traveled to Orlando, Florida to perform at Walt Disney World. This is the first time the band has performed within Walt Disney World since 1996 and the first time a Pisgah band has ever performed inside the Magic Kingdom.

The band also was represented last weekend by Junior Jesse Lloyd at the North Carolina All-State Honors Band. Jesse is one of two students from Haywood County that will represent the Western District at this year’s event.

As the school year comes to a close the band would like to invite everyone to its Spring Concert at 7 p.m. May 7 in the Pisgah High School auditorium. The Show is free to the public.

Then band would like to thank everyone in the community for their continued support of the band program and looks forward to future endeavors.
