The community is invited to join Gainesville ISD, EIKON Consulting Group, and WR Construction to celebrate the opening of the new Robert E. Lee Intermediate Band Hall. The ribbon cutting and open house is scheduled for Monday, August 14 at 5pm at 2100 North Grand Avenue. The 5,000 square foot band hall addition will meet the needs of the growing music program at Robert E. Lee and Gainesville ISD. The design of the band hall includes an open ensemble area with movable partitions that can divide the space into three smaller rooms. An ample amount of instrument storage has also been provided in the new facility as well as an office with instrument repair space and restrooms. A special thank you to the Board of Trustees who initiated this project: Will Presson, Mike Schmitz, Mike Rosenberg, Doug Wade, Corey Hardin, Ryan Green, Phil Neelley.
