    1. Check out the other portions of our website. You should locate videos that others have made of our group, when performing. We do not have a studio-made video to offer. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for your interest in our group.

      Vielen dank!

  1. I just wanted to say I am planning on taking part in this and am so excited for it. My band directer knows the my friend, Trey, and I enjoy playing and getting new music so he suggested this to us and got us the music to practice on. Sadly though, Trey won’t make it this year, as he is leaving for Christmas with his family that morning. I am still super excited and can’t wait!
