ORDER YOUR DVD’S NOW!

(Carl Gutekunst)

 

The 2012 Marching DVD and BluRay and the 2012 Winter Pops DVD are ready for duplication!

 

Which means, if you haven’t ordered you copy, do it now!  Carl Gutekunst has outdone himself this year!  Re-live the marching season.  See the show from pre-season rehearsals thru the finished product, and then some.   This will be a great gift for graduating seniors, grandparents, band and guard members who want to capture every year’s performance forever.

 

Ditto for the Winter Pops Concerts.  See and hear the fantastic performances of Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble and Orchestra.   If you couldn’t make either show, this is your chance to find out what you missed.  If you DID make it to the show, it’s worth another listen.

 

2012 Marching DVD’s cost $15 for a 2-disk set.  The 2012 Marching Season is also available in Blu-Ray, for $20.

 

The 2012 Winter Pops DVD cost $10.

 

This is money well-spent.  You can find the order forms on the Music Booster website at https://sites.google.com/site/hhsmusicus/forms.

 

Contact Ellen Yu at ellenyyu@gmail.com if you have any questions.
