The 240 students who are involved in Pizitz Band receive accolades and exclusive invitations almost every year. Bain has been directing the band for 12 years and Seng has been there for seven years. For Bain and Seng, "music is the main thing, performing the highest quality of music at the highest possible level," Seng says. "We work for our students to constantly push the bar of musical excellence individually and as an ensemble." The Pizitz Band performs frequently throughout the year both at school and in the community, providing music both to educate and entertain its audiences. "The band is a place where a student can be plugged into a group for their three years of middle school," Bain says. "It's a great place to build both musical skills and friendships."
