On Saturday, Sept. 7, 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. The concerts are scheduled for early December and late February.

The Langley Marching Band also provides music and half-time entertainment at all Langley HS Football home games www.langleysports.org. Home games this year are Sept. 6, 12 and 27, and Oct. 11 and 25, and this year’s entertainment features music from “Les Mis.”

The monies raised during Tag Day help Langley Band to replace and restore concert instruments and provide specialized training.

Last year, Langley HS welcomed its new band director, Doug Martin. The band program has grown significantly with Martin and this year, Langley will have one of its largest bands in 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.
