Registration is Open!
Please click on "Request Membership" from the left menu to join us this year! We will be meeting at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Roseville, MN every Thursday from September through May.
Band Placement is by audition so your child gets the best experience possible! As a new member, they will have an audition to see which band they should be in and then that will detrmine what time of day they need to be on-campus.
