CONGRATS SENIORS!

Congratulations to our awesome class of 2021 band students! It has been Ms. Kluga’s honor to be your teacher for four years – my love and best wishes to all as you begin your next adventures in life! Please stay in touch 🙂

MUSIC AT GRADUATION

Although the YHS Band and Orchestra are not able to perform in-person at this year’s ceremony, our June 2020 recording of Pomp and Circumstance, and a selection of our 2021 concert recordings will be featured. Ms. Kluga is so pleased that our music students will still have the opportunity to contribute to this beloved YHS tradition!
