Summer 2021 Summer Music is Postponed

Summer Music is postponed another year due to COVID-19. We want o provide a strong and consistent program for all of our students and families, however, health and safety guidance for learning and the performing arts continue to change. While we are disappointed at not providingSummerMusic this year, the health and safety of students, families, and teachers is of utmost importance. We hope to welcome back students to the program and provide this opportunity in Summer 2022!


Seattle All-City Band

Established in 1951 by Seattle Public Schools, All-City Band has a reputation for excellence in music education, student leadership, and entertainment.

The band brings together students from schools throughout the greater Seattle area to entertain in upwards of 20 parades and community celebrations each summer.

While program specifics are currently uncertain due to the changing nature of state and local COVID-19 guidance and vaccine rollout, students can register for Summer 2021. Tuition will not be collected until the program is finalized and communicated to those who have registered. The program asks that students register as soon as possible so they can plan for the summer.
