The Athens High School Band Department invites you to our first Band Petting Zoo!  5:30 – 6:00 pm will be an Informational Meeting and 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm will be the “Petting Zoo.”  This will take place in the Athens High School Auditorium, Band Room and Choir Room. This is open to all Athens City Schools elementary school students who will be eligible to participate in the 2019-2020 elementary school bands.


Students will have the opportunity to try Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba and Percussion. There will be demonstrations of each instrument by current Athens High School Band students. The high school students and current Athens band parents will share their experiences and be on hand for questions after the meeting portion.


Information about next year’s band program will also be discussed by band directors Brandon Lias and Aaron Backes. No commitment is necessary, just you and your student come and let them try out the instruments! If you have any questions, please feel free to email
