Instrument Drive and More!

This just in! The Tosa West Band has officially begun their instrument drive! We will be collecting used (potentially broken) instruments that families no longer want to send to our partner schools in Puerto Rico on our trip. These schools are in need of a few more things as they continue to recover from the Hurricanes of last year. Thanks for considering a donation to the Tosa West Band mission! 

In addition, we have just received a donation of marching band uniforms to send to Puerto Rico as well!

Character Parades

The past few weeks the Tosa West Band has been working hard to perform for other schools in the district at their annual character parades. The students really rocked out as we split the band up into two ensembles for the parades.

Great Performance!

The past two weeks we were visited by two great college ensembles! It was absolutely great to hear Tosa West Alum, Dan Van Zeeland play with Elmhurst College’s Jazz Band and Vocal Jazz on 10/25 and hear the wonderful UW-Eau Claire Symphony Orchestra on 10/29. Great Musical listening experiences for all!

Congrats Seniors! and Will O Way
