Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, and Symphony Band will perform at MSBOA Band and Orchestra Festival at Woodhaven High School. The schedule and location is VERY different from years past! Since Churchill is under construction, they will not be hosting this year. Therefore, we will perform at Woodhaven HS on Friday and Saturday, March 2 and 3. Performance dates and times for each group are listed below. An itinerary with details for each group can be found on the music website and in the link below. Individuals will be responsible for their own transportation to and from Woodhaven. If you anticipate a problem with transportation, please let me know and I will help connect you with a family for carpooling. We hope many of you will be able to join us for our Festival performances at Woodhaven HS. Admission is free!

Our February Restaurant Fundraiser runs throughout the month of February at the Grand Tavern in Laurel Park Place. You pick the day and time that’s most convenient for you!
When you go, just remember to tell your server that you’re with the Livonia Stevenson Music Department and give them our frequent diner number, which is 100090 and a portion of your bill donated to the music department. That’s all there is to it. No flyer necessary. Visit as many times as you would like, including their Saturday and Sunday brunch. And you don’t need to be a music family to participate. Tell your friends and family they can participate too! http://grandtavernlivonia.com/
