The Tri-Cities High School Band Program, located in East Point, Georgia, is a part of the Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) Magnet Program which began in 1990. Gifted young artists receive highly specialized training in the arts while earning a high school diploma. The creation of the VPA Magnet Program at Tri-Cities High School is one of the best efforts by any high school in the Southeast to correlate an academic program with concentrated training in both the visual and performing arts.
The mission of the band program is to provide a quality instrumental music education in a nurturing environment. The band program exists to facilitate the highest level of musical achievement and character development through a comprehensive curriculum, in keeping with each student’s interest, needs and abilities.
