Welcome to the Union Academy Band page. The UA band program is a comprehensive program consisting of ensembles from 6th grade to 12th grade. We pride ourselves in making great music and wonderful memories. Our goal is to use music education as a tool to develop students into great people.
The band program consist of 6th grade Beginning Band, 7th grade Intermediate Band, 8th grade Concert Band, High School Symphonic Band, and Wind Ensemble. We are also very proud of our Marching Cardinal Band and our Cardinal Jazz Band.
This website will be a key tool in communication between the band family. A lot of information can be found on this site, so please take the opportunity to look around. Updates will be made as we continue to strive for excellence so come back and visit from time to time. Please feel free to email one of the band directors if you can't find an answer to one of your questions on this website or your student's canvas page.
