  • Junior High and High School Football Games
  • Winter Concert and Spring Concert
  • Solo, Small Group, Large Group, and Jazz Ensemble performance opportunities

Can I Do Band and Sports/Clubs?

Yes!  Many of our band students play one or more sports at DMS or outside of school.  Our band kids play football, volleyball, basketball, track and field, soccer, tennis, golf, baseball, swim, kickstart, and more.  Our kids are scouts, thespians and active in their churches.  Our kids are routinely the top achieving academic students at Dulles Middle School.  You name it, our kids do it AND are successful in band, their other activities and academics.
