Alumni

Center Grove Bands has shaped the lives of so many students, parents, staff, and community members over the years.  Whatever your role was, we’re sure you have many fond memories!  In 2015 we held a band reunion and the guard held a CGCG reunion in 2016 and 2017 to wish the current guard much success at WGI.  It’s always wonderful re-connecting with old friends and reminiscing about the “Good Ole Days”.

Don’t miss out on the next event!
