Monticello High School Band Fundraiser at Pantops

Posted: Updated:

Musicians from Monticello High School took their talents to the streets Saturday.

A woodwind ensemble serenaded customers at Union Bank on Pantops.

The students camped out at businesses across Albemarle County to share their music and raise a little cash during "Tag Day."

"If they choose to donate they can get this tag and put it in their car to show that they support Monticello band," said Marie Fernandez, MHS flute player.

"We really want to show our passion to the community, we want to show how great we are in band, Monticello is such a supportive group to be a part of and it's just a great opportunity to show people what we do," said Steven Rains, MHS clarinet player.

Proceeds from tag day will help pay for band trips, competitions, and uniforms.
