Bands in Review is the one concert each year that requires tickets and is our only annual fundraiser for the Tappan Bands. Performers will not need a ticket but parents, siblings and other guests will. Funds from tickets that Tappan students sell comes right back to support the Tappan Bands! 


  • Tickets are in the attached envelope labeled with the student’s name
  • Money, unsold tickets and the form below should be returned sealed in this envelope by Wednesday, March 15th.
  • Each student is asked to sell 2 individual tickets ($5) and one family ticket* ($10).  
  • One family ticket admits the immediate family members living in one household*.
  • The total value of the tickets in your envelope is $20. 
  • Students are responsible for returning a combination of money and/or unsold tickets equaling at least $20. 
  • Donations are also welcome. Please include them in your envelope with a note.
  • You may request additional tickets from Ms. Stout.

We want everyone to attend Bands In Review! If purchasing tickets is an obstacle for your family attending the concert, please let Ms. Stout know and we can provide no-cost tickets. Tickets will also be available at the door, however the money raised at the door is used to cover general expenses, and will not go directly to Tappan. We encourage you to purchase your tickets from a Tappan student!


TRANSPORTATION: Students will need to provide their own transportation to and from Pioneer High School (601 W. Stadium Blvd., Ann Arbor, MI). If you are in need of transportation assistance, please contact Ms. Stout.

INSTRUMENTS: Students are responsible for transporting their own instruments to/from Pioneer along with anything they need to perform (music, sticks/mallets, mutes, valve oil, reeds, etc). Do not cause stress for yourself, your section, and the band by being unprepared! Leave a reminder for yourself to take home everything that you need on Friday at the end of the school day.

DRESS: Normal concert attire; black dress shirts, black dress bottoms, black shoes/socks. Students will need to stay in uniform from the time they arrive until they leave. Dress for success!

ATTENDANCE: ​​Attendance for concerts is mandatory except in cases of emergency. Every band member is important and we need to know ASAP if someone will be absent so we can make adjustments and ensure all parts are covered.
