Band_2015_Festival-18webIt’s time to celebrate the Blue Jay Band, past and present. A big part of that celebration is connecting with the Jesuit Band of 2016-2017 while welcoming home those Blue Jay bandsmen who are the foundation of today’s program.

You and your family are invited to the Blue Jay Band Homecoming on August 13, 2016.

RSVP Online

The celebration will unfold as follows:

  • 4 p.m. – Band alumni, their families (including those who supported them when they were performing for the Blue & White – their parents), and the 2016-2017 Blue Jay Band and their families are invited to Mass in the Chapel of the North American Martyrs.
  • Following Mass, all are invited to the Student Commons for a reception, compliments of the Advancement Office and the parents of today’s band members. The Blue Jay Shop will be open from 4:45 – 6 p.m.
  • At the reception, you will have a chance to meet band directors Joe Caluda and Jason Giaccone and engage with today’s Jays and their parents. And Blue Jay alumni can reconnect and reminisce with former Jesuit band directors Bruce Pollock, B.J. Perez, Jay Haydel, and Brenda Castillo (assistant), all of whom have been invited.
  • 6 p.m. – Band director Joe Caluda invites all guests to the auditorium for a mini concert.
