Friday Game HOMECOMING vs. Hardeeville-Ridgeland

This Friday is May River High School’s Homecoming football game.  The queen and king will be crowned during halftime, therefore the band will not perform during halftime.  The Silver Sound instead will perform their show during the pregame festivities, at 7:06pm.

BAND COMPETITION THIS SATURDAY – Lowcountry Invitational – hosted by Wando High School and is being held at Buccaneer Field on Charleston Southern University campus.  The May River HS “SILVER SOUND” will participate in their 3rd and final competition of the season, and in its young history.

Hope to “hear” you there!!!!!!!
