Bands on the Run a Smashing Success!
Thank you to all our generous sponsors and the entire community for supporting the first Bands on the Run 5k Fun Run and Family Fun Walk on March 31. Despite a cloudy sky and drizzle, over 200 runners walkers and volunteers turned out to show that they want to keep the music playing. We met our goal!!
A special shout out to the Langley Oaks Neighborhood, who were wonderful hosts to the runners and walkers on their journey!

Congratulations Winterguard on Excellent Final PerformanceLangley Winterguard finished out their season on March 30, with an impressive 4th place finish in their class of 17 guards at the AIA Colorguard Championships, once again posting their new highest score of the season. In only their third year, the Langley Winterguard is already performing at a very high level, consistently captivating with precision and grace.
Historic Performances at Assessments!
For the first time in Langley history, all three concert bands earned Superior ratings. Each band--Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, and Wind Symphony--performed beautifully on very challenging music before a critical panel of expert judges, and a large and appreciative audience.
The further impact of this achievement is that, because the Marching Saxons also made school history by receiving a Superior rating in the Fall, for the first time in Langley history, we are a Virginia Honor Band. This designation is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon bands by the Virginia Band and Orchestra Directors Association.
