**Important information regarding the Har-Bur "SWITCHERS" Program for the school year 2018/19**


The link below provides a detailed description and explanation of the program. After-school meetings/rehearsals will begin in early October.

*Please Read*
This year poses an extremely difficult challenge with regard to our present inventory. Due to the success of the program in prior years (including current use by those students) the type and number of school-owned instruments is extremely limited. Only a handful of students will be able to work on a new low wind or brass instruments this fall. Students will be selected on the basis of interest and final decisions will be determined based upon recommendations from the director(s)
