On Saturday, Sept. 22, band members from Langley High School will participate in “Tag Day” throughout neighborhoods in McLean and Great Falls. Each year, the Langley High School Band raises money through door-to-door fundraising, “tagging” neighbors for their monetary support. In return, band members are personally inviting donors to come and enjoy one or all of Langley HS Bands free concerts held in the school auditorium in the winter and spring. Concert dates are Dec. 6, 2012, Feb. 21, 2013 and June 6, 2013.

The Langley Marching Band also provides music and half-time entertainment at all Langley HS Football home games (www.langleysports.org).

The monies raised during Tag Day help Langley Band to replace and restore concert instruments and provide specialized training through professional musicians for band students.

Langley HS welcomes new band director, Doug Martin. Martin was a band student in Fairfax County at Madison High School, and has worked as a band director for Fairfax County for 14 years.

Tag Day is the band’s biggest fundraiser, and the band is counting on the support from the community to help them achieve their fundraising goals. To donate, go to www.langleybands.org, and see the calendar of upcoming events.
