Throughout the school year, we host a number of major events that support the entire band program at West. These events are made possible by the time and dedication of our band parents, as well as the generosity of many local businesses. All profits benefit the Waukesha West High School Band program, which serves more than 250 students, by providing funds not available through the school budget process.  For information on how you can volunteer for any of these events, contact Kim Dutelle.
