Band students being conducted by band teacher

Band Director: Ms. S Rowe

Band begins in Grade 6 through Grade 8 and is a full year program offered at Mitford. 

Band concerts are hosted during the school year where students perform in front of their families and friends during evening performances.  The afternoon concert rehearsals performed in front of staff and students is a wonderful opportunity for our school to come together and celebrate our band students.
