To make each show better and better the band has set a goal of getting new instruments and equipment to replace old and broken ones and to also meet the needs of the growing enrollment.

"The school has helped to purchase new drum major podiums, our music boosters raised money to purchase a new Tuba, and through the amazing generosity of the Morris Educational Foundation we are getting a new marimba, a new xylophone, and a new vibraphon, said Gallaher.

After the Yamaha Cup the MHS band will compete in the Mt. Olive Competition.
